Madrid: Real Madrid vice-captain Marcelo extended his 11-year stay with the Spanish giants by signing a new contract until 2022, the club announced on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, 29, has won three Champions League and four La Liga titles in over 400 appearances since joining from Fluminense in 2006.

“Real Madrid and Marcelo have agreed to extend the contract of the player, who will remain tied to the club until June 30, 2022,” the club said.

Marcelo will, though, be suspended for Madrid’s next two La Liga games after his ban for being sent off for a kick at Jefferson Lerma in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Levante was also confirmed on Wednesday.

The left-back will be absent for Sunday’s trip to Real Sociedad and the visit of Real Betis on Sept.20.

Werner dreams ‘big’

Timo Werner has admitted he wants to join a “big club” amidst reports Real Madrid are interesting in signing the Germany striker, who makes his Champions League debut on Wednesday.

Werner will play the first Champions League match of his career at Leipzig’s Red Bull Arena when RB make their debut in European football’s top club competition against last season’s semi-finalists Monaco.

The 21-year-old forward, who has a contract until 2020, is in a rich vein of form, scoring six goals in his last four games for club and country.

Werner forced his way into the plans of Germany’s head coach Joachim Loew for next year’s World Cup by helping his country win July’s Confederations Cup final in Russia. He has now earned a place in Loew’s first-choice team.

However, he has told magazine Sport Bild that he eventually wants to move on from Leipzig, and Spanish newspapers Marca and AS have already reported Real’s interest in the striker.

“Until now, everything has gone well with Leipzig, therefore I don’t think about what could happen in one, two or three years, but of course I what to play for a big club at some point,” he said.
