Casemiro extends Madrid contract

Real Madrid have announced that midfielder Casemiro has signed a contract extension until 2021.

The 23-year-old returned to the Santiago Bernabeu at the beginning of the summer after a successful loan spell at Porto last season and is viewed as the first choice to replace either Luka Modric or Toni Kroos following the departures of Lucas Silva and Asier Illarramendi.

Casemiro, whose previous deal was due to expire in two years' time, joined Madrid in January 2013 from Sao Paulo and has made 26 appearances for Los Blancos to date.
