Rewarding players with new contract means trusting in their ability to deliver more success and when it’s a long-term deal, it’s a way of safeguarding the future, erasing fear and preventing big money spenders to price them away.
The European champions are putting everything into place in a bid to rule the world for quite a long time with the latest development.
Real Madrid are set to offer six new players a new contract. According to reports in Spain, Karim Benzema, Isco, Marco Asensio, Marcelo, Dani Carvajal and Raphael Varane are all set to extend their stays with the La Liga and Champions League holders.
Marca reports that Benzema’s current contract ends in 2019, but will be given a two-year extension till 2021 while midfielder Isco is set to be offered a bumper deal till 2021 with a £650m release clause inserted into the contract.
Winger Asensio could also be offered a new deal until 2023 despite agreeing to a new deal last year and the likes of Carvajal, Varane, and Marcelo will all be tied down until 2022 – by which time Marcelo, the Brazilian left back, will be 34.
