With Real Madrid set to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG in the summer as a free agent, there have been fleeting rumours that the Parisians might be planning a revenge mission on the Merengues.

Indeed, it has been rumoured that PSG might look to launch a move for Real Madrid’s attacking superstar Vinicius Jr. in the summer.

It was suggested that the Ligue 1 champions would be prepared to shell out as much as €200 million to sign the Brazilian international.

Nothing to PSG interest rumours

However, transfer news expert Ben Jacobs via Caught Offside, has provided an update on the matter, stating that PSG are not looking to sign Vinicius Jr. from Real Madrid.

“Vini Jr is not a name PSG are looking at, despite some rumours about what Mbappe’s arrival in Madrid could mean for his place in the team,” Jacobs stated.

“I expect him to stay at Real. If he ever became available on the market it might be a different story, but PSG know they are wasting their time trying for this summer.”

Despite all the rumblings about how Mbappe’s arrival might impact Real Madrid’s attacking department and Vinicius in particular, there are no plans for him to leave Real Madrid.

The Merengues handed the 23-year-old attacker a new contract only last year and are further considering offering another new deal until the summer of 2029, with wages on par with Mbappe’s.

As such, PSG are aware that it would be futile to pursue the Real Madrid superstar this summer and are not looking to make a move at this point.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
