Linked to Real Madrid until June 2025, Vinicius Jr has been shining under Carlo Ancelotti since the start of the season. A situation which prompts Florentino Pérez to activate for the extension of his Brazilian striker, who has at least special status internally.

Regularly singled out since his arrival at Real Madrid for his irregularity, a series of outbursts and disappointing performances, Vinicius Jr has really changed status in recent months. Like Karim Benzema , the Brazil international has become indispensable to Carlo Ancelotti and has impressive statistics this season with 9 goals and 7 assists in 15 appearances for the merengue jersey, while he had just 14 goals before this new year. There is no longer any doubt as to the identity of the player to be lined up on the Madrid striker's left flank, enough to relegate Eden Hazard to the sidelines. A change of status which should be synonymous with a new contract in line with the weight of the player at Real Madrid Especially since the situation could quickly become problematic.

The time has come to extend for Vinicius Jr

Indeed, Vinicius Jr is signed with Real Madrid until June 2025, but his current emoluments could quickly appear to be a major hurdle given his rating in the market. It must be said that the Brazilian's performances have not gone unnoticed in Europe, which could endanger the Casa Blanca in the coming months, especially as several important contenders have already been identified, starting with PSG as revealed to you on Leonardo is a big fan of the former Flamengo player and repeatedly tried to get his hands on him when Neymar then Kylian Mbappé was announced on departure. Florentino Pérez has nevertheless always closed the door to a departure of his Brazilian, with good reason when one observes his importance in the Merengue today. Vinicius Jr indeed enjoys a special status at Real Madrid , who did not hesitate to spend € 45m in 2017 to secure his services when he was only 16 years old. A daring bet that we do not regret. “It was an investment,” they say within Real Madrid, in comments relayed by El Mundo. A huge salary for a player of only 16, but a big bet for the future. »Indeed, Vinicius Jr was at that time guaranteed to receive a net annual salary of 3.5M €, an amount which has not changed since and which is clearly obsolete. today, since several undesirable members of the workforce are currently better paid than the former Flamengo , like Mariano Diaz and its 5M € per season. Patron of TFM , the representative agency of Vinicius Jr , Frederico Pena recently spoke out on the subject with Globoesporte, confirming half-heartedly that the Brazilian's current remuneration was not in line with his new status with the Merengue, without confirming the amount: “Here, in Spain, he was said to be among the five lowest paid employees, but this information is not confirmed. We don't really know what the other salaries are. Based on my experience in the market, I don't think that's true, but let's say it's in the bottom third. “

A new double-digit salary

The Real Madrid thus logically works on the extension of Vinicius Jr as recently announced Marca. “They know it is time to improve this amount,” admits those around the nugget to El Mundo. According to the Spanish daily, confidence reigns internally regarding the renewal of the lease of Vinicius Jr which will be accompanied by a substantial increase. The two sides plan to discuss the next few months in order to reach a deal that would see the 21-year-old striker climb close to the second tier of squad wages, where Toni Kroos , Luka Modric , Thibaut Courteous or even David Alaba . According to recent information from Marca, the idea of ​​the Merengue would be to offer an annual salary of around € 10 million to Vinicius Jr, and this before the arrival of Kylian Mbappé . The PSG striker, free at the end of the season, seems to be heading towards Real Madrid who are willing to offer him a colossal contract which would then upset the hierarchy of salaries, and would accentuate the gap between two star status players. In the meantime, Vinicius Jr does not seem in a rush to get his raise, enjoying his state of grace in the Spanish capital. “I'm very calm, I want to stay and I don't care how long my next contract is or how much they pay me. All that matters to me is the satisfaction of being in the best club in the world, ”he told TNT Sports Brazil a few days ago.
