Real Madrid Considers Breaking Transfer Policy to Secure Dani Carvajal

Dani Carvajal contract extension

Real Madrid’s season is far from over as they prepare for the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. However, their eyes are also on the future, particularly regarding Dani Carvajal, who could win his record sixth Champions League title on June 1st.

According to Relevo, Real Madrid is contemplating extending the right-back’s contract until at least 2026, possibly even 2027, deviating from their usual policy. Typically, the club negotiates contracts with players over 30 in their final 12 months, as seen with Toni Kroos and Luka Modrić. Carvajal’s current deal expires in 2025, but the club aims to secure his future sooner.

Carvajal’s exceptional fitness is a significant factor in this decision. Despite missing 53 games due to injury in the 2020/21 season, he has since maintained peak physical condition. This season, he has only missed two games due to injury, a stark contrast to previous years.

Carvajal attributes his improved health to dietary changes, including eliminating gluten, and a focused approach to physical and mental well-being. “I asked for help from a nutritionist, a coach, and eliminated gluten from my diet completely,” he shared in an interview with Universo Valdano.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti plans to manage Carvajal’s minutes while grooming a younger replacement. For now, Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez, expected to extend his contract, will hold the fort.

With club captain Nacho set to depart, Carvajal is poised to become the vice-captain and, potentially, the main captain if Modrić also leaves. This would mark a significant milestone for Carvajal, who has been with the club since he was 12.

Real Madrid’s consideration to break their policy for Carvajal underscores his importance to the team and his remarkable journey from a young academy player to a potential club captain.
