REAL MADRID star Marcelo has signed a new contract at the La Liga giants to stay at the club until at least 2022. The arrangement was officially announced on the club website on Wednesday with the Brazilian full back due to hold a press conference on Thursday at 14:00 CET.

Marcelo has made 414 appearances in total for Real and with his contract extension can expect to overtake Roberto Carlos's tally of 527 as the foreign player with the most appearances for the club.

Marcelo has been a steady contributor for Real Madrid ever since.

When Marcelo arrived at the Bernabéu - for what he thought was merely a discussion but not a transfer - the coaching staff were unsure whether to attach him to Castilla or the first team.

The Brazil worldwide can boast three Champions League titles to his name, along with four La Liga crowns.

Despite being at the club for over a decade, Marcelo continues to be key part of Zinedine Zidane's outfit.

Official Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez wrote in his report that he saw Marcelo kick Lerma in the back away from the action.

Los Blancos attempted to appeal against the ban, but a Spanish Football Federation committee chose to throw out their argument and have upheld the suspension.

The result of the match between Real Madrid and Levante was a 1-1 draw.
