Real Madrid have tied down Rodrygo Goes to a new long-term contract, with the Brazilian forward signing a new deal until 2028.
The young forward has excelled since joining the club’s first team in 2019 and Los Blancos felt compelled to improve and extend his deal that was due to expire in 2025.
Rodrygo played a big role in Real Madrid‘s latest Champions League triumph, scoring important goals against Chelsea in the quarter finals before netting a crucial brace against Manchester City late on in the semi finals.
Salary increase and a billion euro release clause
The only thing missing is the signature to finalise the extension agreed between Real Madrid and Rodrygo. The idea is that this will take place next week.
The release clause of the forward will be 1 billion euros, as has become the norm at Real Madrid for key players, a symbolic ‘hands-off’ figure.
the figure set by the offices to shield their stars. For some time now, several suitors had been calling for the Brazilian, with special insistence from the Premier League, but the priority of Real Madrid and the player has always been to stay together.
The sporting management have also rewarded Rodrygo‘s loyalty and development with a significant salary increase.
