Real Madrid and Vinicius have agreed to extend the attacker’s contract in principle, which was supposed to expire in 2024. This new deal will not only be lengthier, but it will also feature a hefty wage increase for Vinicius, who, along with Lunin and Vallejo, has been among the club’s lowest-paid players since joining Real Madrid.
Vinicius has always made it clear that a contract extension — and raise — was not a priority for him, but it is now time for Real Madrid to reward his patience and his outstanding on-field accomplishments.
Some issues have to be worked out between the two parties, most notably his contract’s new expiration date. The two choices are 2026 or 2027, with Vinicius leaning toward the shorter agreement. According to sources in the Spanish press, Vinicius will now earn €10 million per year and his release clause will be boosted from €350 million to €1,000 million.
