Real Madrid striker Raul and goalkeeper Iker Casillas have signed contract extensions that will keep them at the Primera Liga club for the rest of their careers.
Casillas, 26, has signed a deal with Real until 2017 while club captain Raul, 30, extended his deal by one year to 2011.
“Iker Casillas and Raul have both agreed to stay with the club for the rest of their sporting lives,” Real president Ramon Calderon told a news conference on Thursday.
“On this day, which is Valentine’s day, Iker, Raul and Real can say they love each other, they need each other, and complement each other and will commit for life.
“I am not going to speak about money but I can say they will earn less than they deserve because the example they set for the young and the enthusiasm they transmit to the fans isn’t quantifiable and you cannot put a value on it.”
