In victory for the Burning Dees, foxfootycomau understands Petracca signed for less than $ 1 million a year for seven seasons, a figure he was supposed to command elsewhere if he tested the market

On Tuesday evening, sources close to the deal said the deal was worth between $ 6million and $ 6million5million over its duration

“There was a lot of thinking going into going there, that’s pretty much my entire career so making a seven year plan with the club is really exciting I’m just happy with the direction the club is going and the direction in which we are going

“The club trusted me when they drafted me in 2014 and all I want to do is repay that faith”

Petracca, the best and fairer of 2020 and All-Australian, was already locked up until the end of 2022, but has decided to extend in recent weeks

Then it was just a question for his manager Robbie D’Orazio and the club to come to an agreement, which they formally ticked off at the start of the week.

“Christian will now be a Melbourne player for life and our members and supporters can look forward to cheering him on throughout what we are sure will be the best years of his career,” said the boss of the Dees list, Tim Lamb

“Over the past two seasons Christian has established himself as one of the elite players in the competition and we are confident his best is yet to come

“Turning his back on Free Agency, and what undoubtedly would have been significant offers from other clubs, speaks volumes about his character and shows how much he loves this club, his teammates, his coaches and the environment in which we worked difficult to create

“It is an exciting time to be a part of the club and Christian has been unwavering in his commitment to be a part of the journey we are on

“He strives to help lead us to where we want to be, and we look forward to seeing what he can produce in red and blue for many more years to come.”

Petracca was committed to staying on a long-term deal and didn’t want to lose every Melbourne dollar to the detriment of his teammates Demons have been busy lately, locking Max Gawn (2025), Christian Salem (2026) and Clayton Oliver (2023) to new contracts
