In a recent report, Marca mentioned that Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior is poised to pen a new contract this summer. It has been claimed that the Madrid star would put pen to paper on a new deal with the club when he returns from pre-season later this month.
Vinicius Jr.’s Impressive Career At Madrid
The Brazilian wide player had a brilliant campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as he produced a lot of match-winning displays to help Los Blancos do the La Liga and the UEFA Champions League double recently.
The 21-year-old has a stellar goal-scoring record at the Madrid club after he banged in 36 goals and secured 43 assists in 170 matches for them thus far.
Vinicius Jr. managed to dazzle with his performances for Los Blancos last season when he averaged 2.3 shots, 1.9 key passes and 2.7 dribbles per game in La Liga. He was even excellent when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 85.9% in the Spanish top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Vinicius Jr. can use his quickness and agility to drive to the byline or cut inside to cause a lot of headaches for the opposition defenders. He can contribute by scoring a handful of goals for his team in the final third. The Brazilian sensation can even create some inviting chances for others around him in and around the opponent’s penalty box.
Thus, it makes sense for both parties to extend their time for the long run. Vinicius Jr. is playing some of his best football at the moment and is guaranteed a chance to win more major trophies in the coming seasons if he stays at Real Madrid.
Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti can also benefit from tieing the gifted winger down to a new contract as he strengths Madrid’s first XI considerably for the coming years. All in all, it will be a good move for both the Brazilian player and the Madrid club as they look to bring more success back to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the future.
