Brazilian left-back Marcelo has been rewarded for his fine form with a new five-year contract by Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old has been a key part of the Real side that have won back-to-back Champions League titles and his new deal signs him up until June 2022.
The Spanish giants announced that Marcelo will appear in a press-conference at the Bernabeu on Thursday afternoon to formally announce the deal.
If he sees out the contract it would take his time in Madrid up to 15 years, having celebrated his 10th anniversary at the club this year.
Marcelo joined Real back in 2007 from Fluminese and was immediately hailed as the long-term successor to Roberto Carlos’ left-back berth.
The full-back has more than lived up to the billing in the ten years since and claimed his fourth La Liga title and third Champions League crown in May.
Last season was one of his best in a Real shirt, with the Brazil international finding the back of the net three times in 47 appearances.
In total he has made 414 appearances for the 12-time European champions, scoring 28 goals in that time.
So far in this campaign Marcelo has made six appearances, but saw red in the 1-1 draw with Levante on Saturday.
