A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, El Nacional mentioned that Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior has rejected a move to Manchester United. It has been revealed that the Brazilian speedster has declined a bumper contract offer from the Red Devils in favour of prolonging his stay with Los Blancos.

Vinicius Jr.’s Excellent Numbers At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium This Season

The 21-year-old has made an incredible start to this campaign after producing several match-winning displays on the left side of Carlo Ancelotti’s frontline. Vincius Jr. has banged in nine goals and provided seven assists in 16 appearances for Los Blancos this season in all competitions.

The ex-Flamengo wing wizard has given a good account of himself by averaging 1.3 tackles, 2.8 shots, 2.1 key passes and 3.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. He has been excellent with his ball distribution in the attacking end of the field as he has completed 85.5% of his attempted passes in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).

Vinicius Junior Rejects A Move To Manchester United: Big Boost For Real Madrid?

Vinicius Jr. is blessed with electric pace that helps him breeze past his marker down the left flank. He can often turn on the afterburners to get to the byline and has added plenty of goals and assists to his game this season. The Brazilian winger can even get stuck in with some solid tackles and is proficient at leading the press for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the opposition half. He hardly throws away possession and doesn’t mind working hard for the benefit of his team.

Furthermore, Vinicius Jr. has formed an outstanding attacking partnership with Karim Benzema at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. His current contract with Los Blancos is set to expire in the summer of 2025, so his recent decision to decline Man United’s offer will be a massive boost for the Madrid giants as they would definitely benefit from retaining his services for the long run.

At 21, Vinicius Jr. has the potential to become a generational talent which is why Ancelotti should think about keeping hold of him for at least the duration of his contract. He has what it takes to help Real Madrid fight for the league title and challenge for a few more trophies over the next few years.
