In a recent report, Marca has mentioned that Real Madrid full-back Lucas Vazquez is close to penning a three-year deal to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium until the summer of 2024. It is believed that the Spaniard will finally put an end to all the uncertainty surrounding his future by committing to the Madrid outfit for three more seasons (via Marca).
Vazquez’s Impressive Form At The Bernabeu This Season
Vazquez has once again proven his worth as an influential member of Los Blancos’ squad this season by putting in a run of impressive displays down the right-wing. The 29-year-old has registered two goals and eight assists in 34 matches for the Spanish outfit this term on all fronts.
The Spanish sensation deserves a lot of credit for averaging 2.4 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 0.9 shots, 1.9 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League this season. He has also taken care of the ball relatively well from the right flank based on his pass completion rate of 87.9% in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).
Vazquez has won plenty of trophies during his time at the Spanish capital, so it makes sense for him to extend his spell with Los Blancos in this off-season. The nine-time Spain international has what it takes to be a regular starter under the stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti, who was appointed as the new Madrid boss recently.
Vazquez Close To Penning A Three-Way Extension: Good Move For Both Parties?
Vazquez has a great work ethic as he doesn’t mind going the extra mile for the benefit of his team. He is a quick and agile wide player who can make some promising runs on the right-wing. The Spanish talent packs a lot of venom with his shots and excels at delivering a few inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty box. He can even contribute by picking up some important goals and assists when his teammates need him the most.
Vazquez has mostly been used at right-back as he can do a reasonable defensive job at the back. However, the Spaniard is better suited as a right-sided wide player as he can be such a great threat going forward while playing with confidence on the pitch.
Now that Vazquez is close to penning a new contract and getting his long-term future sorted at Madrid, he will finally get a chance to solely concentrate on improving his performances on the field. We can expect him to become a valuable member of Ancelotti’s dressing room due to his versatility and ability to offer some natural width out on the wide areas. With all things considered, Vazquez’s three-year extension will be a good move for both the player and the Madrid club as he could still lead them to even more silverware in the years to come.
