Real Madrid star to be given lucrative contract to reject United

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid are set to offer Fabio Coentrao a new and improved contract, despite increasing interest from foreign clubs, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

The Los Blancos full-back has been heavily linked with the exit door this year, firstly coming close to joining Premier League champions Manchester United in the summer, and then repeatedly being targeted by clubs for the January transfer window.

The general consensus was that the Portugal international would move from the Bernabeu at the beginning of the new-year, as he has struggled to cement a place in the first-team.

However now it appears he is to be one of two players, along with compatriot Pepe, to receive offers on a new deal which would see his wages increased.

According to A Bola, citing Spanish publication AS as their source, the pair either have been, or will soon be, offered contracts that will put paid to any chance of them leaving.

It's a strange move by Madrid, as Coentrao in particular was touted to be sold to Manchester United in January, with the incoming funds perhaps going towards a sum that will help his current club to buy a new striker.

However renown agent Jorge Mendes is in the process of negotiating a salary increase, and he could well end up penning a new deal which will keep him in Spain.
