With the season fast coming to a close, Real Madrid are working ’round the clock to secure the future of some of their first-team stars.

While the futures of veteran players such as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Nacho Fernandez has been in focus, the club are also trying to secure the long-term future of goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.

Lunin agrees contract extension

To that end, Real Madrid fans have been dealt with some positive news. According to Manuel Amor (h/t Madrid Zone), Lunin has agreed a contract extension at Real Madrid.

The Ukrainian international is likely to sign a new deal that could keep him at Santiago Bernabeu until 2029, thus solidifying his long-term future at the club.

This extension is accompanied by a substantial salary increase, reflecting Lunin’s contributions and his elevated status within the squad.

Real Madrid’s commitment extends beyond mere symbolism – Lunin is now a recognized and valued member of the first team.

Lunin acknowledges Courtois’ likely return to the starting role next season. However, his commitment to competition is unwavering.

His growth over the past year has been remarkable, and with a packed schedule encompassing La Liga, the Champions League, the Copa del Rey, and other competitions, Lunin is poised to see significant playing time.

While the possibility of lucrative offers, particularly after the upcoming European Championship, cannot be entirely discounted, both Lunin and the club management are prepared to evaluate such approaches with a measured approach.

Lunin’s appointment of Jorge Mendes as his agent indicates there could be further movement up ahead. But for the time being, the Ukrainian international appears more than ready to commit to his long-term future at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
