Real Madrid’s focus on youth doesn’t mean the club is willing to let go of all of its veterans. The team values experience and commitment, and it’s ready to offer a contract extension to one of its pillars.
That player is Dani Carvajal, who has been with the team since 2013. He’s been a key player for the club throughout his time there, and he’s had a strong season so far.
Carvajal has been criticized at times, but he’s always bounced back. This season, he’s been one of the best players in the league, according to Football Espana.
The terms of the contract extension are still being negotiated, but it’s expected to be a one-year extension with an option for a second year. This is a common formula for players over the age of 30, and Carvajal is 32 years old.
While Carvajal’s future seems to be secure, the club still has to make decisions about other players in similar situations. It will have to decide whether to offer other extensions or seek replacements.
One thing is for sure: we’ll be seeing more of Carvajal. He’s played 1,976 minutes in 23 games this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists. His stats are expected to improve as the season goes on.
