Real Madrid defender Marcelo has agreed a contract extension that will potentially see the long-serving Brazilian complete 16 years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Macelo, 29, has agreed terms on a new five-year deal with the European champions, an extension until the end of the 2021-22 season.

The Brazilian international joined Los Blancos from Fluminese in 2006. He has gone on to make 406 appearances for the club, scoring 28 goals.

Marcelo has won the Champions League three times, La Liga four times and the Copa del Rey and Fifa Club World Cup twice.

He will appear before media at 1pm on Thursday to put pen-to-paper.
