Vazquez impressed this season, mainly featuring at right-back before rupturing his cruciate ligament against Barcelona in April.

He will become the second Los Blancos player to sign on the dotted line in recent days after Luka Modric agreed to a one-year extension.

Real Madrid players have all been asked to take pay-cuts on signing new deals to help them amid the financial crisis sparked by the coronavirus lockdown.
