Brazilian forward, Rodrygo has extended his stay with Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid, days after his countryman, Vinicius Junior did the same at the club.

Rodrygo who is one of the brightest youngsters in the world, put pen to paper earlier today, November 2, for a deal that would keep him at Real Madrid until 2028.

In line with the new trend in La Liga, especially between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, where clubs put an outrageous release clause in the contract of their youngsters, Madrid included a one billion euro release clause in Rodrygo’s new deal.

The 22-year-old attacking-minded footballer has made 18 appearances for Brazil’s national team and scored 39 goals in 179 games for Real Madrid.
