Real Madrid Star Given New £310 Million Release Clause

Real Madrid Star Given New £310 Million Release Clause

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has penned a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, and of course it contains a massive release clause.

The Spain international came through the youth system at Real but only got as far as the Castilla side, before being sold to Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of €5 million in 2012.

A buy-back clause was included in the deal, though, and after seeing his brilliant displays for Bayer, Real felt the need to bring him back to the club for a €6.5 million after just one season. And he's gone on to become the club's regular right-back, winning three Champions Leagues, one Copa Del Rey and one La Liga title in his second stint.

His importance to Zinedine Zidane and Real cannot be overstated, so much so that Real have tied him down until 2022 as well as reportedly inserting a massive €350 million (£310m) release clause in the deal.

Commenting on his buy-out clause at a press conference announcing the new deal, he said:

"The release clause is also so high so that nobody can take me away from here and I don't want to leave.

"This club is such a big part of my life so this is fulfilling a dream for me. I'm very grateful to the club.

The 25-year old has been tipped to become captain of Los Blancos and though he's well aware that it belongs to Sergio Ramos at present, and for the next few years, it is a goal of his.

"I would be lying if I said to you that I have never imagined myself as the captain here," he added.

"But if that comes, it will be a long time into the future. Our captain is Sergio Ramos and he does it wonderfully. Some day, I would like to do it, though."

In recent weeks, Real have made it their mission to tie down their key players to long-term contracts and have been successful in doing so - Isco and Marcelo have both committed their futures to the club in the last fortnight, while Karim Benzema is said to be next in line.
