To say that Vinicius Jr has grown leaps and bounds since his arrival would be an understatement. The Brazilian protege always had an X-factor in his performances, but lacked an end product, which he has discovered under Carlo Ancelotti this season.

In 30 league starts last season, the former Flamengo player scored 17 goals and provided ten assists. Moreover, his goal sealed the team’s 1-0 win over Liverpool in the final of the UEFA Champions League last month.

Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid are desperate to renew the 21-year-old’s contract. Though several clubs were interested in signing Vinicius, the youngster only wanted to stay in Madrid and is said to have reached an agreement in principle to pen an extension.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, the Brazilian feels valued at the club and is willing to commit his future until 2026 or 2027 with Los Blancos.

Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing him and offered the winger an offer worth €40 million per season. Further, they even promised a huge signing bonus and business opportunities in Qatar as part of their proposal.

Despite the Parisiens’ continuous efforts from November to March, Vinicius turned it down to extend at Real Madrid. Undoubtedly, the 21-year-old is committed and loyal to the club’s project.

The player is expected to sign his contract with the club early next month, after which an official announcement will be made. Heading into next season, Vinicius will look to further his impact on the team.

Transfer Triumph: In-demand defender picks Real Madrid above other suitors

Real Madrid have received a major transfer boost as Lille defender, Leny Yoro, has chosen to join Los Blancos over other interested clubs, reports Alejandro Alcazar via SPORT.

When Paris Saint-Germain attempted to negotiate a deal with Lille, offering more money than Real Madrid, Yoro made it clear he preferred the Spanish giants. 

Despite PSG’s efforts, including meetings with Yoro’s representatives, they could not convince him to change his mind.

Interestingly, the outlet mentions that Yoro is following a similar path to his compatriot Aurelien Tchouameni, who also chose Real Madrid despite competition from PSG and several Premier League teams. 

Real Madrid really value Yoro

Real Madrid see Yoro as a valuable addition, especially with the recent departure of Nacho. This move has made it crucial for the club to find a reliable replacement, and Yoro is their chosen candidate. 

It is to be noted that Yoro has one year remaining on his contract with Lille, who initially asked for a hefty €100 million transfer fee.

This amount was considered too high for a player who could leave for free after a year. Lille eventually reduced the asking price to €60 million, an amount that PSG and other clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool were willing to meet. 

However, Real Madrid were not prepared to pay more than €30 million, knowing that Yoro wanted to join them and could do so for free next year.

What is Real Madrid’s strategy?

It is said that Real Madrid’s initial plan was to let Yoro play one more year at Lille and sign him for free in 2025. They were even ready to offer Yoro a special signing bonus, similar to what they did with David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger, which would be added to his salary. 

But Nacho’s departure changed everything. Real Madrid now urgently need a fourth central defender, prompting them to enter negotiations with Lille, something they had previously avoided.

To secure Yoro’s signing this summer, Real Madrid are considering raising their offer to €40 million, including performance-based bonuses. 

Lille might accept this offer, knowing that Yoro could either join Real Madrid now or stay for another year and leave for free.
