Marcelo extends Real Madrid contract till 2022


Brazilian defender Marcelo has agreed an extension on his current contract with Real Madrid till 2022, the club announced on Wednesday.

Real Madrid have made an official statement to announce that they have reached an agreement with Marcelo to extend his current contract with the club. The extension will see that Brazilian left-back remain at Santiago Bernabeu till June 30, 2022.
