Real Madrid CF midfielder Federico Valverde has extended his current contract with the club by two years. The Uruguay international had already signed a long term deal that would keep him at the club till 2025. However, following his extension, the term ensures that he can stay at the Bernabeu till the year 2027.
With increased wages, Federico Valverde’s release clause has also touched sky-high levels with Real Madrid setting €1 billion ($1.2 billion) as the release clause for the youngster. The 23-year-old has been with Real Madrid for six years and it’s clear that Madrid wants to keep him for the future.
With veteran’s like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos growing old, Real Madrid needs to ensure that the future is in safe hands. Valverde is definitely a talented youngster and can fill in their boots. To date, Valverde has featured 104 times for Real Madrid and won three trophies.
In his appearances for Real Madrid across all competitions, he scored five goals and six assists. A prolific box-to-box midfielder, Valverde boosts immense stamina and can run the midfield on his own. He rose to prominence under former manager Zinedine Zidane.
‘Real Madrid C. F. and Fede Valverde have reached an agreement regarding the extension of the player’s contract in a deal that ties him to the club for the next six seasons, until 30 June 2027,’ said the club in an official statement.
