Vinicius Jr. signed a new contract with Real Madrid only last year, committing his future to the club until the summer of 2027.

One of the faces of this Real Madrid outfit, the Brazilian superstar has been key to the success that the team has achieved in recent years and as such, the Merengues want to make him feel protected and valued at the club.

Real Madrid consider new contract for Vinicius

As such, SPORT reports that Real Madrid are now considering the possibility of offering Vinicius a new contract in the summer of this year.

As mentioned earlier, the Brazilian’s current deal, which he signed in 2027, runs until the summer of 2027.

Now, the Merengues wish to add two more years to that contract and secure the 23-year-old superstar’s future until 2029.

The new deal would also come with a pay bump for the Brazilian so that his salary is on par or closer to what Kylian Mbappe would be earning when he joins in the summer.

The Frenchman, set to arrive from PSG, is expected to become the highest-paid player at Real Madrid and the club wish to hand Vinicius an improved contract so that his wages are closer to that of the expected new signing.

Vinicius attracting interest

As reported just a while back, Vinicius is attracting interest from some European heavyweights like PSG, Liverpool, and Chelsea, who would be willing to pay €200 million for his signing.

But Real Madrid have no intentions of offloading the Brazilian international while the player himself is not looking for a way out from the Santiago Bernabeu.

As such, the possibility of an exit is off the table and the two parties could decide to further strengthen their partnership with a renewal until 2029.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
