Roberto Soldado has signed a four-year contract extension with Real Madrid.
Roberto Soldado has signed a four-year contract extension with Real Madrid, keeping him at club until 2012.
Newly appointed Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster is reportedly an admirer of the 22-year-old, who previously spent two seasons at Real Madrid B before being loaned out to Osasuna.
The Spanish striker scored 11 goals while at Osasuna last season and recently featured in Spain's European Championship qualifying victories over Latvia and Liechtenstein.
Soldado may find regular football at El Santiago Bernabeu hard to come by with the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robinho and Raul all vying for starting roles.
