Real Madrid close to extending ‘Cafuucas’ contract after Luka Modric boost

Real Madrid’s executives are working hard to extend the contracts of a few players whose deals are close to expiry.

Los Blancos are reportedly on the verge of handing Luka Modric a new one-year contract. But now there’s been another boost.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Lucas Vazquez’s contract extension is now also imminent. The club are now very close to agreeing terms over a new deal with the wing-back.

The 32-year-old’s current contract is set to expire in the summer. However, Real Madrid are going to hand him a new one-year deal as he’s seen as a solid competition for Dani Carvajal in the right-back spot.

Vazquez spoke about his aspiration to sign a new contract with Real Madrid after the Villarreal draw, saying: “I would love to stay. Negotiations over my renewal are going well.”

Incidentally, it was during this interview when Jude Bellingham shouted ‘Cafuuucas’ at Vazquez. This is basically comparing him to legendary Brazilian right-back Cafu.

Vazquez was on fire against Villarreal, scoring and assisting twice in the 4-4 draw. He’s taken his tally to three goals and eight assists in 36 appearances so far this season.
