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.

Premier League club close the doors on defender’s exit amid Real Madrid interest

Published

Back in March, news surfaced that Real Madrid and Manchester United were both interested in signing Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite

The competition for his signature was fierce, but United eventually shifted their attention to another target, Leny Yoro, leaving Real Madrid without a new defender. 

Despite their interest, Everton’s high valuation of Branthwaite at €80 million made both clubs reconsider their pursuit.

According to a report from The Athletic, Everton’s stance on Branthwaite has now solidified. They are not entertaining any offers for the defender. 

Real Madrid, in reality, never made an official bid. They were merely observing from a distance as Everton turned down two substantial offers from Manchester United. 

The highest of these offers was close to €60 million, including both fixed and variable components, yet it still fell short of Everton’s expectations.

Everton want nothing less than €80 million

These deals have set a precedent, making Everton firm in their demand of £65-70 million, equivalent to over €82 million, for Branthwaite. Despite his high valuation, Everton is adamant about retaining him, considering him a crucial part of their future plans.

Complicating matters, Everton are facing significant financial difficulties. The club has been in a precarious financial position, confirmed by recent reports. 

The Friedkin Group, owners of Roma and potential new buyers for Everton, have halted negotiations with the club’s current owner, Farhad Moshiri. 

They have accumulated over €600 million in debt, and the uncertainty surrounding its management has only worsened the situation.

In light of these financial troubles, selling Branthwaite for a substantial amount could have provided a much-needed financial boost for Everton. However, the club is reluctant to part with one of their most promising young talents. 

They view Branthwaite as a vital component of their long-term strategy and are unwilling to sell him at a discount, even in their current economic state.

At Goodison Park, the decision to keep Branthwaite despite lucrative offers is a clear statement of their commitment to building a strong future. The young defender is seen as a key asset, and Everton’s refusal to sell him underscores their belief in his potential. 

The club’s financial struggles continue to pose challenges, but they are determined to navigate these difficulties without compromising their long-term vision.
