Marcelo signs new five-year Real Madrid deal

Barcelona's Luis Suarez left and Jordi Alba right celebrate with Lionel Messi after his goal in a 3-0 win over Juventus in Champions League play Tuesday

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has extended his contract until 2022, the Spanish football club announced Wednesday.

Real Madrid have stuttered somewhat to start the new season, though, having drawn two of their opening three games.

It also took Marcelo three seasons before he scored his first goal with Real Madrid, finishing with four goals overall in 2008-09.

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

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

His contract extension comes right as the 29-year-old received a two-match suspension after being handed a red card against Levante on Saturday.

The red card is the fourth time that Marcelo has been sent for an early bath in his entire career, with the other three occasions coming in coming in two previous La Liga outings and in the second leg of the 2011 Supercopa final against bitter rivals Barcelona.

Referee Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez wrote in his official report that he had seen the Madrid vice-captain "kick an opponent in the back, with the ball well away from the action".

Madrid can appeal against the punishment, which includes a fine of €700 for the club and €600 for the player, within 10 days.

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