Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has announced that Lucas Vazquez and Real Madrid have agreed on a new contract that will keep him at the club until June 2025. 

There will be a final meeting soon to iron out the details and sign the contract, similar to the process Real Madrid followed for Luka Modric.

It’s important to note that Vazquez’s current contract with Real Madrid was set to expire at the end of this month which is why after Real Madrid’s victory over Borussia Dortmund, the focus quickly shifted to Vazquez’s future with the team.

Meanwhile, Vazquez was asked about the possibility of extending his contract after the Champions League final, especially since his future at the club seemed uncertain, and he stated,

“Yes, it looks like I’m going to stay at Real Madrid.”

The decision to keep Vazquez beyond his current contract was taken by Real Madrid a few weeks ago. 

The club’s top officials chose to keep Vazquez and Dani Carvajal as their right-backs for the next season and this decision was made after Vazquez showed that the team does not need major changes on the right side of the defence yet. 

While there is not a specific date for finalising the renewal, things look positive because both Vazquez and the club want the same outcome. Real Madrid are reportedly pleased with his performance and consider him an excellent backup for Carvajal.

As for Vazquez, he has repeatedly expressed his desire to remain at the club, and it seems that Real Madrid share this sentiment, as both sides are close to finalising the contract extension. 

He has the support of both the coaching staff and the club’s board. 

Given that the Spaniard would have become a free agent this summer, it is no surprise that other clubs showed interest in him. However, Vazquez turned down an offer from Juventus, making it clear that he had no intention of leaving Real Madrid.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
