Federico Valverde agrees contract extension with Real Madrid

Federico Valverde have agreed terms of a new contract with Real Madrid. The contract is now ready until June 2028 with a €1B release clause, as per Fabrizio Romano

Valverde has been a regular starter under Carlo Ancelotti. He scored 12 goals in 56 appearances last season and has featured 11 times this season for Los Blancos. The Uruguayan midfielder is in line to receive a contract extension at Santiago Bernabeu.

The 25-year-old was instrumental to Madrid’s 14th Champions League victory, providing an assist for Vinicius Junior’s winning goal against Liverpool in 2022. Valverde had a contract until 2027 but has agreed to extend it by an additional year, featuring a €1B release clause.

Madrid are also finalizing contract renewals for two more key players: Vinícius Júnior and Eduardo Camavinga.

Vinicius has already agreed to a new deal, with the official announcement expected soon. His previous contract was set to end in 2024, and the extension will keep him at the club until 2027.

This new deal includes a substantial salary increase and a release clause of €1B, placing him among the top earners at the club. Vinicius joins fellow Brazilian talents Rodrygo and Militão in extending their contracts with Madrid.

Romano also reports that Eduardo Camavinga has signed a new long-term deal at Real Madrid until June 2028 with a €1B release clause.

The 22-year-old has extended his contract with the Los Blancos, securing his stay until at least 2028. His previous deal was set to expire in 2025. Camavinga’s versatility on the field has been invaluable for Ancelotti, as he’s played in various roles, including central midfield and left-back.

Despite his reservations about the position, Camavinga has excelled as a defensive option when needed, especially in the absence of a natural left-sided defender.

The France international joined Madrid from Rennes in 2021 and has already accumulated an impressive list of honors, including 1 LaLiga title, 1 Copa del Rey, 1 Champions League, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 1 UEFA Super Cup, and 1 FIFA Club World Cup.

All three players, including Vinicius, Valverde and Camavinga, will receive new contracts with increased wages and substantial buy-out clauses reaching €1B.

This move by Madrid aim to keep their talented young core together and deter potential bids from clubs seeking to poach talent from the Spanish capital.
