PSG tries an incredible coup with Vinicius, according to the Spanish press

According to the newspaper Marca, PSG have been pressing Vinicius Junior in recent months to convince him not to extend his contract with Real. But the Brazilian does not imagine himself elsewhere than in Madrid.

“He does anything. Brother, don’t play with him, my mother’s life. He plays against us.” We are October 27, 2020. That day, Karim Benzema let loose in the corridors of Borussia-Park. At halftime of a Champions League match against Mönchengladbach (2-2), the television cameras film the French striker in full discussion with Ferland Mendy. Reassembled, he clearly asks him to stop serving one of their teammates at Real. This partner is Vinicius Junior. And this episode is now far behind him.

The season that has just ended will have been that of his metamorphosis. Critics of his lack of efficiency and his propensity in his early days to run with his head in the handlebars have given way to an obvious observation: he is now one of the best attackers in the world. At only 21 years old. And inevitably, such a progression arouses much envy. According to information from the Madrid daily Marca this Sunday, PSG would have positioned itself in recent months. Between November 2021 and last March, the capital club would have done the pressing to convince him not to extend his contract with Real, which currently runs until 2024.

Paris would have offered him an XXL salary

A salary of 40 million euros net per season has reportedly been offered to him, along with a generous signing bonus and even “a number of business opportunities in Qatar”. Vinicius would not have followed up. In his eyes, Real represents the perfect club for his development. And there is no question for him to leave. Neither in France nor elsewhere. According to Marca, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United also faced polite rejection. Main actor of the great season successful by Madrid, crowned champion of Spain and winner of its 14th Champions League, Vinicius should soon extend his contract until 2026 or 2027.

His release clause should increase to 1 billion euros and his emoluments will be seriously revised upwards. Arrived in 2018 from Flamengo against 45 million euros, the Brazilian international (14 selections) still receives a salary of young hope, so much so that goalkeeper Andriy Lunin and defender Jesus Vallejo are the only players less well paid as the only scorer in the last C1 final against Liverpool. This situation will change to allow him to receive a salary worthy of his new status.

“I think he will have the Ballon d’Or one day, of course, I have no doubts, Florentino Pérez said about him this week at the microphone of the Spanish program El Chiringuito. He is happy, it’s become a man here. We will try to extend it as soon as possible.” It’s only a matter of days.
