Madrid - Spanish international forward Lucas Vazquez has signed a one-year contract extension with Real Madrid to keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2021, the club announced on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old joined Madrid as a teenager in 2007 and made his first-team breakthrough last season after a successful spell on loan at Espanyol.

He featured in May's Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid and was part of the Spain squad at Euro 2016.

Vazquez is the third member of Zinedine Zidane's squad to renew his contract in as many weeks, following in the footsteps of Toni Kroos (2022) and Luka Modric (2020).

According to Spanish media, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo could soon be the next players to sign new deals.
