Brazilian star Rodrygo Goes signs a new contract with Real Madrid that will keep him at the club until June 30, 2028.
The winger also has a mammoth €1 Billion release clause, which is a usual amount for Real Madrid’s star players these days. Rodrygo’s previous deal was set to expire in the summer of 2025, so Los Blancos decided to move quickly with his contract extension.
Despite not having a good start this season, Real Madrid decided to give him a new contract as the club trusted his potential.
Rodrygo’s teammate Vinicius Jr has also extended his contract recently with the club. He has signed a deal until 2027. Both Rodrygo and Vinicius had reached an agreement about extending their contracts with the club months ago but decided to wait a little more before making it official.
