In a recent report, Goal.com revealed that Real Madrid speedster Vinicius Jr. is close to penning a new contract. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos are close to agreeing on a new deal with the Brazilian winger this summer.
Vinicius Jr.’s Successful Season In The Spanish Capital
Vinicius Jr. had a sensational campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after he produced a run of match-winning performances as a key member of Carlo Ancelotti’s frontline. The 21-year-old found the back of the net on 22 occasions and picked up 20 assists in 52 matches for Los Blancos last season across multiple competitions.
The ex-Flamengo talent has been a joy to watch in Spain as he averaged 2.3 shots, 1.9 key passes and 2.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He has even been careful when interchanging possession with his teammates in the final third based on his pass completion rate of 85.9% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
Vinicius Jr. Close To Penning A New Contract With Real Madrid: Good Move For Both Parties?
Vinicius Jr. has got electric pace under his belt and can make some impressive runs with the ball on the left flank. He has a knack for creating a few excellent chances for others around him in the attacking end of the field. Vinicius Jr. is primarily a left-sided wide player but can even fill in as a right-winger if needed.
The Brazil international has scored a lot of crucial goals for Real Madrid over the past ten months and knows how to win trophies at the Bernabeu. At 21, he will only get better with each year and is destined to have a very bright future in European football.
Thus, it is logical for Los Blancos to extend Vinicius Jr.’s contract so that they can ensure his long-term future at the club. The Brazilian sensation can also reap the dividends of playing under a world-class like Carlo Ancelotti in the coming seasons. It seems like a good move for both the player and the Madrid club to extend their time together in search of even more silverware in the future.
