As AS revealed last Friday, Real Madrid and Lucas Vázquez have agreed to renew the player’s contract until 30 June 2021, a fact that was made official on Wednesday as the club announced that both parties signed on the dotted line.

The 25-year old forward has become one of the club’s most reliable players under Zinedine Zidane, something that Real Madrid have now rewarded him for.

"Model player" 

“He’s a model player and a great professional,” said the French coach after his side’s 2-1 win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

So far this season, Vazquez has played in 11 official matches (eight in LaLiga, two in the Champions League, as well as the UEFA SuperCup final), scoring one goal.

After a successful season-long loan to Espanyol in 2015, Real Madrid awarded Vazquez a five-year contact, with this latest deal having bumped it up a further year.
