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.

Joao Cancelo has, for a long time, been considered one of the best full-backs in the world of football. What makes the Portuguese international special is not just his ability to contribute flawlessly at both ends of the field but also the fact that he can recreate his magic on both flanks.

For a player of such quality to depart Manchester City unsurprisingly broke the internet. Cancelo signed for Bayern Munich on a six-month loan in January with a whopping €70 million purchase clause included in the paperwork.

According to reports from AS, the player preferred a move to Spain. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona were offered Cancelo’s services, and it was only after both La Liga giants rejected it that Bayern Munich got the chance to sign him.

For the Catalans, the player’s salary was the hurdle preventing his arrival. In Real Madrid’s case, however, it was the board’s reluctance to change the squad midway through the season.

For a long time now, Real Madrid have maintained a low profile in winter transfer windows. Carlo Ancelotti liked the full-back’s profile and saw him as a good fit, but the management would not hear of it.

Real Madrid have had a torrid time at the full-back position in recent weeks, indicating that the squad was in urgent need of new signings.

For almost a month, Ancelotti has been without a right-back after both Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal suffered injuries. Just as the latter recovered, Ferland Mendy hobbled off the field and could miss six weeks of action.

Cancelo’s signing would have thus been the ideal way to kill two birds with one stone. Nevertheless, the management have their faith in the young Vinicius Tobias and it remains to be seen if their gamble pays off.
