Real will offer a golden bridge to Vinicius
At the end of his contract in two years at Real, Vinicius Junior will soon extend until 2026. He will receive one of the best salaries of the club.
This is it, Vinicius Junior has finally passed the long-awaited milestone, the one that was to allow him to become a great player. Arrived at Real Madrid in 2018 when he was only 18 years old with a huge pressure on his shoulders, one would almost forget that the Brazilian international (14 caps, one goal) is only 21 today.
He has reached a milestone
But this season, the number 20 has let go and especially gained confidence and consistency. He scored 22 goals, twice as many as in his first three seasons together in the Merengue shirt. He also knew how to serve the collective with 16 assists and ended with a flourish, scoring the only goal of the Champions League final against Liverpool, offering the 14th Champions League in its history to the Madrid club.
No extension since his arrival
A great year that deserves a good reward. Because as surprising as it may seem, Vinicius earns the 3rd lowest salary of the White House with 3.9 million euros per year. He is still on the figures of his first contract with Real since he has not extended since. But with two years left on his contract, things will drastically change for the winger.
This Wednesday, AS announces that the leaders of Los Blancos will soon extend their nugget. Extending his lease until 2026, “Vini” will progress to the biggest salaries of the club and will especially have a release clause that will amount to one billion euros. Compared to last summer, his market value would have increased from 44 million to 100 million euros.
Currently on vacation in the United States, the native of São Gonçalo should sign his new lease upon his return.
