In 2018, Dani Carvajal revealed that he wanted to play in the Premier League before ending his sporting career. At that time, he had a contract until June 30, 2022, so his statements were quite surprising. Now, with two years left on his contract, there are new developments regarding his future.
“I would love to play in the Premier League. It’s an experience I would like to have and I don’t want to miss out on that,” was the phrase Carvajal said five years ago. However, he ended up renewing with Real Madrid until 2025.
Now his situation has completely changed. Despite his desire to play in the Premier League, he prefers and values much more the idea of staying at Real Madrid. It has also been fundamental for him to settle in the Spanish capital with his family and friends.
The story he is creating with Real Madrid is one that very few can write, and as a homegrown player and a true Madridista, it would be very special for him to retire at the best club in the world.
Carvajal’s current idea is to renew his contract for one or two more seasons, and then hang up his boots and bid farewell to football at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Yesterday, Marca journalist José Félix Díaz published information from Real Madrid, stating that the club’s idea was to offer Dani Carvajal a renewal sooner rather than later.
This shows the importance and value that Carvajal holds for the club, and it seems that his desire to play in the Premier League has taken a backseat to his commitment and love for Real Madrid. It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds in the coming months, and whether Carvajal will indeed finish his career at the Santiago Bernabéu, leaving behind a legacy that few can match.
