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.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
