La Liga By: Ayodeji Tunde | 13/09/2017

Real Madrid C. F. and Marcelo have agreed to extend the player's contract, which will see him remain at the club until 30 June 2022.

While Brazillian star will be having a session with the media on Thursday, this new deal means that Marcelo will continue to hug the left touchline at the Santiago Bernabeu for many years yet, having cemented his spot in the team during 10 memorable seasons in Madrid.

When he arrived at the club in 2007, he was viewed as a major prospect. But Marcelo has gone on to surpass all expectations, becoming one of the best left-backs in the world and a key influence in many triumphs for the team.
