Real Madrid defender Marcelo has renewed his contract with the reigning Spanish champions for another two years which is set to expire in 2020.
The Brazilian's current contract was valid until June 2020.
Marcelo, who joined Madrid from Fluminense in 2007, will appear at a press conference at the Bernabeu at 2pm CEST on Thursday.
A statement on Real's official website said: "Real Madrid CF and Marcelo have agreed to extend the player's contract, which will see him remain at the club until June 30, 2022".
Isco has been rewarded for his impressive form last season, which saw him step into the Madrid team following Gareth Bale's injury and help them to the Champions League and La Liga title, while he also scored as the club beat Manchester United to win the UEFA Super Cup last month. He is now the club's second-longest serving foreign player with 414 appearances, behind only his compatriot Roberto Carlos, who played 527 times for Real Madrid.
The left-back will be suspended from Madrid's next two La Liga games after his ban for being sent off for a kick at Jefferson Lerma in Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Levante. Marcelo will miss Sunday's match at Real Sociedad and Wednesday's game against Real Betis.
