Real Madrid yet to receive final approval from 25-year-old over new contract

In the coming weeks, Real Madrid are hoping to wrap up another crucial contract agreement, that being for Andriy Lunin. The 25-year-old has had an excellent season, having stepped up in the absence of Thibaut Courtois, who only made his first appearance of the campaign during Saturday’s victory over Cadiz.

Lunin will have a fight on his hands to retain the number one spot for the remainder of the season, although he will be in goals for Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg clash against Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid are very keen to extend Lunin’s contract, which is set to expire next summer. An agreement is close, but as Fabrizio Romano has reported in The Daily Briefing, some details still need to be sorted out before everything can be finalised.

“We already said last month that Real Madrid were preparing a contract proposal, everything was ready to be sent to the player… Now, they have presented a new deal proposal for Andriy Lunin that has also been shared with the new agent of the player, the super agent Jorge Mendes.

“They want to extend his contract – his current deal expires in summer ’25 – as they believe Lunin can be part of the future of the club. It’s up to the player to give the final green light, but Real Madrid want to get it underway.”

The reason for the delay is unknown, but it could be to do with Courtois’ return to the Real Madrid set-up after injury. The Belgian is expected to be first-choice ‘keeper for next season, and given that Lunin wants to be a starter himself, it could cause complications. For now, everything seems calm, despite his delay.
