Brazilian trio sign contract extensions with Real Madrid – Fabrizio Romano
The story of Real Madrid and Brazilians has re-emerged strongly in recent years. The club has historically seen greats from the South American country including Marcelo, Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo, and the latest generation promises nothing less.
Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr, and Rodrigo currently bring the Brazilian flavour to Los Blancos’ camp, and Fabrizio Romano brings important news regarding the contractual extensions of all their players.
According to reports from the ever-reliable journalist, Militao, Vinicius and Rodrygo have all signed their new contracts with Real Madrid. With the official paperwork done, it is only a matter of time before the official announcements are made.
The centre-back has signed a deal that will see him at the Bernabeu until 2028 with a release clause of €500 million in place. Meanwhile, Rodrygo has penned a contract of similar duration but has a €1 billion release clause.
Vinicius, on the other hand, will be at Real Madrid until 2028 under his new contract. He too has a €1 billion release clause to his name to detract any potential suitors.
All three players are indispensable to Carlo Ancelotti’s setup. While Rodrygo is not a regular starter just yet, the other two already default picks in the XI. Needless to say, they will be a part of the club for at least the next decade.
The trio will next feature midweek when Madrid take on Club America. Yet, it remains to be seen when the club decide to make their renewals official.

Nacho set to stay at Real Madrid, will be new club captain – report
Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.
His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.
Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.
His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.
Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.
The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:
“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.”
While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.
His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.
Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.
Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
