Vinicius Jr has been a hot topic in football this week after he was a victim of racial abuse in the game against Valencia.

The forward has since received unwavering support from prominent sporting figures across the world, including the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Rio Ferdinand, and Ronaldinho, among others. Even the Pele Foundation has shown support to the dejected attacker.

Even Real Madrid have submitted a formal complaint against the incident, to the Prosecutor’s Office in Spain.

Now, according to Diario AS, Real Madrid are planning a huge show of support for Vinicius in tomorrow’s game against Rayo Vallecano.

The Spanish giants will display a club banner condemning racism and back Vinicius, who has been a subject of racism numerous times this season.

The stadium will erupt particularly in the 20th minute, matching Vinicius’ shirt number. However, it must be noted that the Brazilian will not be involved in the action. Due to the red card against Valencia, the attacker is facing a suspension.

It is unclear how many matches the Brazilian will be missing out due to suspension. He will be present in the stadium nonetheless and will witness the show of support.

It is worth noting that there were speculations over Vinicius’ future at the club, which put PSG on high alert. Although it was soon revealed that the forward does not plan on leaving the club, Real Madrid are leaving no stone unturned in keeping the player happy at the Bernabeu despite the constant attacks.

The morning after the game against Valencia, Florentino Perez had a meeting with the Brazilian, who appears happy at the Bernabeu and is likely to continue at the club in the years to come.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
