Real Madrid are set to reward star winger Vinicius Jr. with a new contract that will run until 2028 following his spectacular form this season.
According to reports in Spain, Los Blancos will offer €10M/year to the Brazilian, who has been in superb form this season. After coming in with a lot of hype, Vinicius Jr. was severely criticized for his profligacy in front of goal. This season, though, he has altered the narrative.
The Brazilian international has scored 21 goals, and also registered 20 assists in all competitions this season. He has been a pivotal part of Real Madrid regaining the La Liga crown this season. Besides the league, Vinicius has also been instrumental in Madrid’s journey to the Champions League final. He has formed a deadly partnership with striker Karim Benzema. The two have made Real Madrid an intimidating opponent to play against.
Following his exploits, Madrid are rumored to be preparing a new contract for the former Flamengo man. The deal is set to run until 2028, and will also increase his release clause from €350M to €1 billion.
