Real Madrid have announced that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has signed a contract extension with the club, with his new deal set to expire in the summer of 2026. Courtois will be 34 years old when this contract expires.

Real Madrid C. F. and Thibaut Courtois have agreed an extension to the player’s contract which will see him remain at the club for the next five seasons, up until 30 June 2026.

Courtois signed for Real Madrid in 2018 and while his first season in the club wasn’t as good as some could’ve expected, he quickly became one of the reasons why the team conquered the 2019-2020 La Liga title with his brilliant performances after the Covid break.

In fact, Courtois is now arguably one of the world’s best goalkeepers and also one of Madrid’s best players on a consistent basis. He can be trusted.

While Courtois could be entering his decline when this contract expires five years from now, goalkeepers tend to have longer careers than other players, so this might not be his last contract with Madrid if he keeps performing at an elite level.
