Arbeloa inks new Real Madrid contractAug 1, 2012 - 4:17 PM Madrid, Spain (Sports Network) - Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa signed a two-year contract extension with the club on Wednesday that will keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2016.
Arbeloa came up through Madrid's youth system and left for Deportivo La Coruna in 2006 when he failed to break into the first team.
But after spending more than two seasons in England with Liverpool, Arbeloa returned to the Spanish capital and has become a key figure for manager Jose Mourinho, starting 26 games in La Liga last season.
During his time with Madrid, the Spain international has tallied three goals in 123 appearances.
