While Vinicius Jr's contract with Real Madrid expires on June 30, 2025, the capital club could soon consider the issue of an extension with a salary adapted to his new status.

Arriving at Real Madrid in 2018 for € 45m, Vinicius Junior has been slow to adjust to the club from the Spanish capital. Indeed, overwhelmed by the pressure as he recently confided, the Brazilian winger could not show his best face in the Madrid team, knowing that his successive coaches did not necessarily trust him. But now, everything could well be changing at the start of the season as the 21-year-old seems to have passed a course under the orders of Carlo Ancelotti . In a context where Eden Hazard has never ceased to disappoint since his arrival three years ago, Vinicius Junior has managed to establish himself as one of the best offensive elements of Real Madrid by scoring nine goals and delivering five assists in fourteen games played this season in all competitions.

Vinicius Junior soon among the highest paid players at Real Madrid

Finally, Vinicius Junior has changed status at the start of the 2021/2022 season, and he may soon be rewarded for his efforts. Indeed, this Monday, MARCA provides some details on the future extension of the former Flamengo whose negotiations could take place faster than expected. His change of status within Real Madrid should thus have an impact on his contractual situation insofar as he could now receive much higher emoluments than at present and which would correspond to his new role. Finally, Vinicius Junior having increased its market value thanks to its good performances, Real Madrid must now increase its salary value within its squad. So, while he currently earns € 3.5m/year gross, the São Gonçalo native could now approach the € 10m/year mark, if not exceed it.

In addition, MARCA says that the probable arrival of Kylian Mbappé next summer could also lead Real Madrid to activate to shield the contract of Vinicius Junior . Indeed, the Spanish media explains that the salary difference between the two men would then be colossal even though they are nevertheless considered to have star status. Thus, ideally, the Merengue should settle the question of the new contract of Vinicius Junior before the arrival of Kylian Mbappé , who is currently heading towards an arrival in as part of a free transfer on June 30 after the end of his contract at PSG . Anyway, MARCA makes it clear that Real Madrid is not worried about having to revise his salary upwards and that he will have no embarrassment to offer him one better salaries for the workforce. It remains to be seen when the discussions in this direction will begin.
