Vinicius Jr is enjoying his best season for Real Madrid yet. The arrival of Carlo Ancelotti has helped him develop his finishing. As a result, he has scored 9 goals across all competitions, which is his best return as a Madrid player. In the league, he has scored seven times, also his best tally.
The Brazilian has become one of the first names on the team sheet now, and looks undroppable. As a result, Real Madrid are planning to renew his contract. The deal runs until 2025, and the board wants to give him a better deal.
“Of course I want to renew,” Vinicius Jr told TNT Brazil.
“I want to stay here for a long time, but I am very calm with all that, all at the right time.
“The contract I have is still the one from when I was 16, it doesn’t matter when I’m going to renew, how much I’m going to earn, what matters is the satisfaction of being at the best team in the world.”
The 21-year-old currently earns €3.5 million, and the new deal could see him earn €10 million. Madrid also want to increase the current release clause in his contract worth €700 million.
Real Madrid signed Vinicius Jr when he was 16 years old for an astounding fee worth €45 million.
The Brazilian winger is not only an asset on the pitch, but also commercially. He is slowly building a strong brand value for himself, which is also beneficial for Madrid.
Now, they seem to have gotten the return on investment that they expected to have all those years ago.
