MADRID, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid confirmed on Thursday that Spain international right back Dani Carvajal has signed a three-year extension to his contract with the club.
The 29-year-old's previous deal was due to expire at the end of June 2022, but the club have now assured he will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2025.
The defender follows other Real Madrid players, such as Nacho Fernandez, Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric in committing their futures to the club, with the news of his new contract coming just two days after Real Madrid and Manchester United reached an agreement for French international defender Raphael Varane to move to England.
Carvajal had been regular first-choice right back at Real Madrid until last season when a series of injuries limited him to just 13 La Liga appearances and 17 in all competitions. The injuries also meant he missed out on a place in the Spain squad for the European Championships, although he will almost certainly be in coach Luis Enrique's plans for Spain's forthcoming games in September.
