Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio and defender Raphael Varane has extended their contracts with the La Liga Champions.

Varane, who won the Champions League twice in each of the last two seasons since Zidane took over at Real, added that the French legend was key to the various successes in Real Madrid in the last few seasons.

“Zidane was fundamental to me coming and now he’s the coach who helps me every day,” Varane said. “I thank him for his support and his confidence. He gives me advice and he is a person we respect a lot and listen to when he speaks.”

“I have learned a lot at this club. Every season is a challenge and now I am a more complete player. I have learned at the highest level. In every training session, I learn.”

On the other hand, Asensio, 21, who signed for in 2014 for €3.9 million from Mallorca, and has agreed a new six-year-deal at Santiago Bernabeu a a day after his teammate Varane committed to Real.

After a season-long at both Espanyol and Mallorca, Asensio made his first breakthrough into Los Blancos first team in 2016-17, starting in their UEFA Super Cup win over Sevilla and then making his La Liga debut shortly after.

The Spaniard then played 23 La Liga games last season, and impressed in the Champions League, scoring three times in eight appearances, including a goal in the final against Juventus as Zinedine Zidane’s side lifted the trophy.

Both Varane and Asensio follow the footsteps of clubmates including Marcelo, Isco, Dani Carvajal, Karim Benzema and Marcos Llorente, who have also recently committed their futures to the club.
