Real Madrid have agreed a contract renewal with Vinicius Junior for some time now, but there has been growing concern among the club’s fans in recent weeks whether such a deal has indeed been agreed.
The 23-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of this season, but a move away on a free transfer next summer has been ruled out. Vinicius will remain a Real Madrid player and finally there has been movement in the Madrid camp regarding this matter.
According to expert Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid had planned to make the official announcement last week, but Florentino Perez contracted the COVID-19 virus, which caused the planned ceremony to be postponed. However, it will happen in the coming weeks.
Vinicius will sign a new long-term contract with Real Madrid, with the release clause increasing to €1 billion. This means there is no need to worry about him leaving the club for many, many years, which will be a delight for Madrid fans around the globe.
We remember that Vinicius moved to Spain in 2018 after an adventure with Flamengo, for the amount of 45 million euros.
