PSG very attentive as Vinicius Jr could ‘threaten’ to leave Real Madrid over racism storm
Vinicius Junior was once again involved in the thick of things during last night’s against Valencia. The forward was sent off by the referee after a series of assaults, one of which saw him slap one of the Valencia players.
Unsurprisingly, Vinicius became the target of Valencia supporters, who had made racist remarks against the Brazilian international, prompting the attacker to complain to the referee.
Vinicius was understandably frustrated with the incident, even stating to the referee, “I don’t want to play anymore.” Real Madrid were quick to condemn the act as well and have recently launched an official complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office.
However, as reported by Diario SPORT, it appears the rampant racism hurled against him is slowly getting to the head of Vinicius, who is frustrated with the Spanish league and might want to leave the club.
PSG are attentive to the situation and would jump at any opportunity to sign the Brazilian international. The French outfit consider Vinicius as the ideal man to continue their new project, following the likely exit of Neymar and Lionel Messi this summer.
PSG were linked with a move for Vinicius a few years ago when Real Madrid were discussing the possibility of a potential swap between the Brazilian and his counterpart Neymar. But the Parisian outfit wanted Luka Modric to be included in the deal, which Real Madrid vehemently rejected.
But now PSG have once again entered the market for Vinicius and could make a move if the Brazilian is indeed serious about leaving Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.
Real Madrid, though, have no desire to let go of their prized attacker and would do everything they can to keep him at the club. So it will be interesting to see what measures the club take in order to control Vinicius’ anger over his treatment in the Spanish league.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report
Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.
According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.
The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.
The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.
There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.
Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.
Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.
Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
