French international point guard (or rear) Fabien Causeur (35) has extended his contract with Real Madrid until June 2024.
Arrived at Real Madrid in 2017 from Bamberg (Germany), Fabien Causeur will stay there at least until 2024. The 35-year-old leader (or rear) extended his contract this Thursday with the Merengue, he whose lease was expired on June 30. “I feel very proud, happy, lucky to have the opportunity to wear this jersey for another two years. My family and I are where we always wanted to be. Thank you to all the people of Madrid for their messages of love. See you soon for other titles, ”wrote the native of Brest on Twitter when Real Madrid announced their extension. However, this new signing was far from certain a few weeks ago, when rumors announced his departure. He had confided in this subject in The Team, just after winning the Spanish championship by having a leading role. “In the middle of the season, when I was playing well, I heard what he was saying. As a pro, you still have a huge ego, you take it badly. You’d like more communication, but that’s business. (…) I don’t know if the rumors that now announce that they want to extend me are true. I always dream of retiring here, it’s the club of my dreams. But if I have to leave, I will leave proud, knowing that I have not only earned the respect of my team-mates, but also that of all Madridistas. Football remains the benchmark, but I continue to add my two cents each year so that people remember me,” said Causeur, who also passed through Le Havre, Cholet and Vitoria.
Me siento muy orgulloso, feliz, afortunado por tener la oportunidad de llevar este escudo 2 años más. Mi familia y yo estamos en el lugar que siempre hemos querido estar. Gracias a todos los madridistas por sus mensajes de cariño. A por muchos títulos más. 🤍💜 #HalaMadridYNadaMás pic.twitter.com/dXKQlUk5Tx

A huge track record for Talker with Real
And it worked, since he therefore signed a new lease, which may be the last of his career. This season, Talker who “feels like a fish in water” in Madrid, averaged 8.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in the Euroleague regular season and 10 points, 4 assists and 3.3 rebounds in the play-offs, where Real were beaten in the final by Anadolu Efes Istanbul, and he scored 17 points in the last game of the La Liga final against Barça. Winner of a Euroleague, three Liga, a King’s Cup and four Spanish Super Cups since his arrival with the Merengues, Fabien Causeur is one of the major players of the Madrid club. And its story will last at least two more years. On the other hand, when he had opened the door to a return to the France team, where he has not played since 2018. But Vincent Collet did not retain him in the group of 17 players who will prepare for the Euro .
