Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal is set to sign a contract extension which will keep him in the club until the summer of 2024, according to a report published today on ABC. Said extension included a salary raise, per that same report.
Carvajal’s current deal is expiring in the summer of 2022, which means that the club had to make a decision and offering him a two-year extension seems reasonable given his importance in the team.
While he’s injury-prone and hasn’t been playing much lately because of it, Carvajal is the undisputed starter at the right-back spot and a crucial player for Real Madrid, so they simply had to keep him hoping that he can stay healthy in the future.
Lucas Vazquez will likely be Carvajal’s primary backup next season, although his contract is set to expire next summer and he hasn’t signed an extension just yet. Reports from Spain suggest that Vazquez and Modric have accepted Madrid’s offers to extend their contracts. On the other hand, there are no news about Sergio Ramos and Madrid seem determined about not improving their offer.
