Done deal: Three Real Madrid players set to sign new contracts with €1billion release clause

Three Real Madrid players – Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior and Eder Militao – are all set to sign new Real Madrid contracts in the coming days.

Vinicius Junior will sign until 2027, Rodrygo will sign until 2028 and Eder Militao will sign until 2028.

All three contracts will have a release clause of €1billion to prevent clubs like Paris Saint-Germain from hijacking any of these players.

All three players have reached an agreement with Real Madrid and they are expected to put pen to paper in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Militao believes his performances last season shows he’s worth the €50million spent on signing him from Porto in 2019.

When Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos left last summer, there was fear that Real Madrid’s back line would suffer.

However, the partnership of Militao and David Alaba in the heart of the Real Madrid defence ensured the team remained one of La Liga’s most reliable defences on the way to a title triumph.

Militao also started every game as Real Madrid won the Champions League last season.

“When [Ramos and Varane] left, people stressed because they had made so much history at the club,” Militao told Marca.

“I thought that my time had come to do things well and show the fans, as well as the whole world, that they could also count on me. And I have put together great displays and shown why I am at Real Madrid.

“I have demonstrated [why he cost €50m]. Things did not go well when I arrived because I had two centre-backs ahead of me who had been together for a long time. Now I have shown the reason for my signing.”
