Real Madrid ready to renew in-form forward’s contract

Real Madrid are not going to wait any longer, and will finally make a move to secure the future of one of their hottest young stars. After a massively successful season thus far, the higher ups at the Spanish capital club have reportedly decided to offer Vinicius Junior a contract extension.

The Brazilian first joined Real Madrid in 2018 when he was only only 16, and is still on the same contract until now. He is rumoured to be earning in the vicinity of only £60,000 a week. As such, despite his current importance within the squad, he is also one of the lowest earners.

He first made a small breakthrough in the Real Madrid first team through then-manager Santiago Solari in the 2018-19 season, but faded into the background under Zinedine Zidane. In the current campaign, he somehow found his footing under Carlo Ancelotti, and has already produced 16 goals and 10 assists in all competition. He has formed a strong attacking partnership with Karim Benzema, and has established himself as an important starter.
