Thibaut Courtois has signed a fresh five-year deal with Real Madrid, the club confirmed on Monday.
Madrid have allowed experienced defenders Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane leave the club, as they look to ease financial difficulties compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Madrid have decided to secure the long-term future of goalkeeper Courtois, who has signed a deal running until June 30, 2026.
Courtois joined Madrid from Chelsea in 2018, having impressed for Belgium at the World Cup in Russia where he won the Golden Glove.
He has gone on to establish himself as Los Blancos’ number one after what was an initially tricky start to a second stint in LaLiga – Courtois having previously played for Atletico Madrid on loan from Chelsea.
The 29-year-old has helped Madrid to three trophies, winning LaLiga in 2019-20, that season’s Supercopa de Espana and the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup.
