While writing for AS, journalist Sergio Lopez de Vicente has claimed that last year, Vinicius Jr renewed his contract with Real Madrid until 2027, and as part of his new deal, the Los Blancos have shielded their young forward by putting in an anti-Saudi Arabia release clause of €1 billion.

Vicente claims that the events of signing the new contract took place in the months of September and October last year, but the official announcement of the same will only be made once he is back from his vacation. 

Interestingly enough, Real Madrid have said to have kept this information very private as not even the official partners have been notified of the same. The secrecy behind the same is because, from the club’s offices, it is believed that the future of the team passes through Vini.

The management wants the Brazilian to be the face of future projects and there will be no bargain in that matter. To execute the plan of action, the left-winger will be given more responsibilities from the next season and he will bear the torch after Karim Benzema’s exit.

This can be understood by the fact that the Brazilian was given the iconic number 7 shirt in the recent revamp. So far, neither Mariano nor Eden Hazard managed to do justice to the iconic figure after Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, but the management does have high expectations from Vinicius.

Meanwhile, Vicente also writes that even if Real Madrid acquire Kylian Mbappe this summer, the Frenchman’s position will be anywhere but on the left. The team from the capital city is very clear about the idea that the left wing belongs to Vinicius no matter what. 

On paper, Vinicius ends his current Real Madrid contract in 2024  but in reality, he has already committed his future until 2027, the official announcement of which will be made once he returns.

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.
