After announcing Vinicius Jr.’s new contract earlier today, it now appears that Real Madrid are set to extend the contract of another Brazilian forward in Rodrygo Goes.

Indeed, as per Fabrizio Romano, Rodrygo will sign his new contract with Real Madrid this Thursday, prolonging his stay at the club until the summer of 2028.

Agreement already done

News of Rodrygo’s new contract extension have been doing the rounds since 2022, but an official announcement has not yet been made.

However, as per the update from Romano, there is already an agreement over a new long-term contract for the 22-year-old with Real Madrid.

The new deal is said to run until the summer of 2028 and will likely come with a substantial wage increase, as was the case with Vinicius.

In addition, Rodrygo’s new contract is also understood to consist of a mammoth €1 billion release clause.

The Brazilian international will sign his contract this Thursday, Romano adds.

Key for the present and the future

It has not been an easy start to the season for Rodrygo as he has struggled to find his goalscoring boots this campaign.

Considering that Carlo Ancelotti and his staff have put a lot of faith in him following Karim Benzema’s exit, the Brazilian has been unable to deliver the goods.

However, Real Madrid have no doubts about Rodrygo and see him as a top player for the present and the future.

And, they intend to show faith and trust in him with a new long-term contract which the former Santos wonderkid will sign this Thursday.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
