90min can report that Real Madrid and star winger Vinicius Junior have reached an agreement to extend their contract.
The 21-year-current old’s contract has two years left, but after elevating his performance this past season, he has been upfront about wanting to sign a new one.
This sentiment is shared by Real, who are eager to reach a deal after seeing Vinicius pile up 22 goals and 20 assists in 52 games.
A deal has been made, according to sources familiar with the matter, and Vinicius has agreed to remain at Santiago Bernabeu until the year 2026. Real has included a €1 billion release clause to the contract.
Vinicius recently told Sportv, “I will remain at the best club in the world, Real Madrid. An announcement about my contract is anticipated soon.
Vinicius allegedly turned down offers from a number of other teams in order to pledge his future to the La Liga winners, according to recent claims made by Real president Florentino Perez.
He informed El Chiringuito that “nobody wants to sell Vinicius.” “I believe he will win the Ballon d’Or one day, undoubtedly, just as [Karim] Benzema will this year. I believe he will be outstanding.
The 18-year-old who arrived in Castilla is not the same person we see now. He gets better every year.
“Vinicius’ contract extension is not a concern for us. We’ve got things under control. He was approached, but he always insisted: “I just want to remain at Real Madrid.”
