Vinicius Junior has been one of Europe’s finest wingers over the past couple of years, enjoying a rapid rise to prominence at Santiago Bernabeu. He is now considered one of the leaders of the Real Madrid frontline and could play a vital role for the club in the years to come.

However, Vinicius’ success has come with its consequences. In La Liga this season, he is the most fouled player in the league, receiving 3.4 fouls per game. In UEFA Champions League, the forward is fouled 1.8 times per game.

These are high numbers even for a player of his calibre and indicate the harsh treatment the defenders usually offer to the Brazilian international. He was recently subject to the same treatment by the Cadiz defenders in Real Madrid’s most recent matchup.

According to Diario AS, defenders fouling Vinicius Junior with such impunity is starting to affect the player’s state of mind. There is a feeling inside Valdebebas that they have also started to affect the player’s performances on the pitch.

The Real Madrid camp is also frustrated with the situation. They believe the recent game against Cadiz was an ideal example of how opposition players are dealing with the young forward. The situation has driven a lot of anger within the camp.

But Real Madrid have lost hope that the authorities will take any measures to change the situation. Vinicius’ camp also believes that the situation will not change and the player will continue to attract the attention of not only the players but also the referee.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
