- Raphael Varane has signed a contract extension at Real Madrid to expire in 2022
- He becomes the fifth players to sign an extension at the Santiago Bernabeu this month
- There has been no indication of a release clause in the new deal for the Frenchman
Real Madrid have announced that France defender Raphael Varane has agreed a contract extension at the club.
The 24-year-old's new five-year-deal will expire in the summer of 2022. The player has been with Los Blancos for the last six years.
"Real Madrid C. F. and Varane have agreed to extend the player's contract, which will see him remain at the club until 30 June 2022," a statement on Madrid's official website read.
"Tomorrow, Thursday, at 2pm, Varane will appear before the media in the press room of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium."
The youngster joins Marcos Llorente, Isco, Karim Benzema, Dani Carvajal and Zinedine Zidane in renewing their contract in the month of September.
There's been no indication of a release clause in the deal as yet, but it's very likely that the club inserted a very high one, given the way they've handled recent renewals.
