Real Madrid announced today that Malena Ortiz has renewed with the club until 2022. Malena has been with Real Madrid Femenino since their inception. She joined CD Tacon, which eventually became Real Madrid Femenino, in 2016.
The midfielder previously played for CD Canillas from 2014-2016 and Rayo Vallecano from 2014-2015.
Malena posted this on Twitter after Real Madrid announced her renewal with the club:
“Agradecida e ilusionada de seguir vistiendo esta camiseta.
Gracias al Real Madrid por el apoyo, la confianza y el nivel de compromiso demostrado en todo momento. Estoy con muchísimas ganas y trabajando al máximo para volver a competir cuanto antes. #RealMadrid#RMCity “
Grateful and excited to continue wearing this shirt. Thanks to Real Madrid for the support, trust and level of commitment shown at all times. I’m really looking forward to it and working hard to get back to racing as soon as possible.#RealMadrid#RMCity
Malena underwent surgery after picking up a season-ending injury during Las Blancas’ 2020-21 season and is working to recover in time for next season.
