The Brazilian sensation has officially signed a contract that binds him to the best club in the world until June 30, 2028. While his initial agreement was set to expire in 2025, his exceptional performance and growth as a football player have led to an improved contract.
The Real Madrid forward actually signed his new contract over 16 months ago, but today is when both parties have decided to make it official. Rodrygo’s priority has always been to stay at the prestigious Merengue club, the team he has loved since childhood. Consequently, the negotiations were straightforward, and an agreement was reached quickly.
Rodrygo had caught the interest of numerous top European clubs, all of whom attempted to entice him with a more prominent role in their respective teams. Particularly noteworthy was Paris Saint-Germain’s pursuit, as they were eager to sign him as a replacement for Kylian Mbappé, who is widely expected to join Real Madrid.
Luis Enrique and the PSG executives hold Rodrygo in high regard. Despite their efforts, Rodrygo made it clear that his priority was to remain at Real Madrid for many years to come. The striker is extremely happy at the club, as well as in the city of Madrid.
Protected and secured
Real Madrid has ensured the player’s continuity by including a release clause of €1 billion in his contract, effectively deterring any potential attempts by PSG or any other club to sign him. This means that Rodrygo’s future will depend solely on the Merengue club, at least until 2028.
The Brazilian prodigy is immensely grateful to Real Madrid for providing him with the opportunity to defend their colors for another five years. He has set the goal of becoming an even more important and influential player, despite not yet showcasing his full potential in the early stages of this season due to a lack of luck.
Rodrygo’s contract renewal with Real Madrid is a significant statement of the club’s commitment to nurturing and retaining top talent. The decision to extend his contract until 2028, along with the inclusion of a staggering release clause, demonstrates the confidence and belief that the club has in the young Brazilian’s abilities. As Rodrygo continues to develop and make his mark on the pitch, fans can look forward to witnessing his growth and contributions to the success of Real Madrid in the coming years.
