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.

‘Operation Havertz’ collapses as Real Madrid determine Tottenham striker as ‘urgent’ signing

Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA has provided an update on Real Madrid’s pursuit of Chelsea forward Kai Havertz, claiming that the operation has collapsed completely and the German international will not be joining the Merengues this summer.

Instead, Real Madrid have identified Tottenham Hotspur and England superstar Harry Kane as the top priority and an ‘urgent’ signing for the summer.

With Los Blancos set to bid goodbye to several attackers, they are left with just Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes as senior options in the final third at the moment. So, there will be multiple forwards brought in this summer to make up for the losses.

Havertz was said to be one such player who was well-liked within the club. In fact, reports in Germany stated that the 23-year-old was already on his way to Real Madrid in the summer.

However, that does not appear to be the case as the report from MARCA states that the operation to sign Havertz from Chelsea has already collapsed.

It is claimed that Real Madrid never made any move for the former Bayer Leverkusen ace, while it is also being suggested that he is going through the process of renewing his contract at Stamford Bridge.

While Havertz might no longer be an option on the table, the Merengues are prepared to make a concerted push to sign Kane from Tottenham.

Carlo Ancelotti considers the 29-year-old the ideal replacement for Karim Benzema and wants to sign him up as soon as possible.

However, Real Madrid do not intend to pay over the top for the England striker and will not offer more than €80 million for him. Instead, there may be a possibility that Ferland Mendy could be offered as a makeweight.

Kane’s contract expires next year and with no European football on offer, Tottenham are in a difficult position to keep hold of their ace goalscorer. But negotiations with Daniel Levy are never easy, as Real Madrid learnt in the past in the cases of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

So, it remains to be seen if Los Blancos are successful in completing the ‘urgent’ and ‘necessary’ signing of Kane in the coming weeks.
