Daniel Carvajal has signed a new contract at Real Madrid, tying him to the club until 2020.
The right back, 23, established himself as a key member of the first team last season, overtaking Alvaro Arbeloa in the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu.
There was some talk that the arrival of Danilo from Porto for 32 million euros had unsettled Carvajal and Manchester United and Liverpool were believed to monitoring his situation. But any remote talk of a potential transfer has been nipped in the bud as the defender committed himself to Real for the next five years.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “Real Madrid C.F. have announced the contract extension of Dani Carvajal which will keep him at the club until the 30th of June 2020, for the next five seasons.”
Carvajal grew up in the youth teams at Real before spending a season in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen. He returned to the club in 2013 and has gone on to win four trophies as a Los Blancos player – the Champions League, Copa del Rey, European Super Cup and World Club Cup.
Since making his debut for Real, Carvajal has made 88 appearances, scoring two goals and providing eight assists.
