Uruguayan midfielder Federico Valverde has signed a contract extension with Real Madrid, the club announced on their official website. Valverde’s new contract will expire in the summer of 2027.
His previous deal was set to expire in 2025, so Real Madrid decided to gave him two more years and also a salary raise, per sources. Valverde has established himself as a very important player not only for the future but also for this current season, as he is now the team’s first midfielder whenever Kroos or Modric are not available.
Valverde’s physical presence in the midfield is a key asset in modern football. Furthermore, he has made huge improvements as a distributor and his ability to find himself in scoring positions is underrated, so Valverde has everything he needs to be an undisputed starter for Madrid as soon as Modric enters his true decline.
This contract extension is completely reasonable and seeing the club rewarding young, hard-working players like Valverde is always great.
