According to Diario AS, Real Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal has reached a new milestone at the club. The Spain international will mark two decades (20 years) at the club this summer.

Carvajal joined the club from Leganes as a 10-year-old making his way through the ranks. He only spent a single season away from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu at Bayer Leverkusen. His performances in Germany convinced the club hierarchy to bring him back to the club.

The player has since made 329 appearances for the club, and joins the likes of Karim Benzema and Luka Modric as the only three players to have started all five of Real Madrid’s Champions League triumphs over the last decade.

Following the departure of Marcelo this summer, Carvajal will also become the fourth captain at the club, with Benzema, Modric and Nacho Fernandez in the top three.

Despite injuries hampering the player’s involvement in recent seasons, Carvajal has his name in gold as a club legend.
