REAL MADRID star Marcelo has signed a new contract at the La Liga giants to stay at the club until at least 2022.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the club until June 2022.

The 29-year-old joined in 2007, making nearly 300 appearances as Real have maintained their status as one of the most successful clubs in world football.

Marcelo, 29, will appear before the media at 1400 CET (1300 GMT) on Thursday after putting pen to paper on fresh terms with the Liga champions. He was dismissed for kicking out at Jefferson Lerma, with his two-match ban upheld by the Royal Spanish Football Federation earlier on Wednesday.

The Brazil worldwide received a two-match suspension following a red card for a hard foul at the end of the league game against Levante on Saturday.

Marcelo joined Real back in 2007 from Fluminese and was immediately hailed as the long-term successor to Roberto Carlos' left-back berth.

They begin their attempt to win a third Champions League in a row on Wednesday against APOEL in Group H.
