Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr has taken over the headlines in Europe over the past few months, owing to his exceptional displays on the pitch and increasing public image.

Real Madrid, the biggest benefactors of the South American’s meteoric rise, are closing in on a contract renewal of their star man.

Deemed heavily to be the face of the franchise, reports by Cadena SER claim that Vinicius’ contract renewal is simply a matter of time and includes many interesting details.

With a sizable release clause and a hefty incentive in the event that he wins the Ballon d’Or, Madrid are banking on Vinicius as a player to mark history at the Spanish club. He would also receive a significantly high income from the hierarchy as well.

Furthermore, the report points out that the 22-year-old has a loyalty bonus in his contract, which gets triggered if he fulfils his entire contract. Real Madrid believe this is an effective way to tie down their biggest asset in case football’s top clubs come knocking.

Following Karim Benzema’s departure to Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad, Madrid do not want to run the risk of losing another one of their important players, especially with the player still in his prime years.

The Merengues are awaiting Kylian Mbappe’s response and are working tirelessly to acquire his signature. But they have not undermined the key man already at their disposal, deciding to take great care of Vinicius and providing him with a status that goes in tandem with his superstar persona.

After wrapping up the contract extension of the legendary Luka Modric, Los Blancos are diverting all their attention to the Brazilian winger. An agreement has been in place for a long time now and an announcement is likely to be made soon.

According to Fabrizio Romano, both Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez will soon sign new contracts with Real Madrid. 

These deals are expected to be official shortly, ensuring that both players will stay with the club for another year as their contracts will be valid until June 2025.

Interestingly, Carlo Ancelotti has been key to this decision as he believes Modric’s experience and leadership are crucial for the team, especially since Real Madrid has a relatively young midfield lineup.

What is noteworthy is that Modric is willing to accept a pay cut to remain with the club. In the 2023/24 season, Modric earned around €10 million. 

However, under the new agreement, he will see a significant reduction in his salary by 40%. This means he will earn about €6 million for the 2024/25 season. Modric’s representatives have agreed to these terms.

On the other hand, Vazquez, who has been the subject of recent exit rumours, has also reached an agreement with Real Madrid for a new contract. 

This deal will also keep him at the club until June 2025. There will be a final meeting soon to finalise the details and sign the contract, similar to the process for Modric’s deal.

It is said that Real Madrid’s decision to keep Vazquez was made some time ago as the club view him as the ideal backup for Dani Carvajal, indicating that they do not plan to sign another right-back during the summer transfer window.

Madrid’s confidence

Although the negotiations took longer than expected, both Vazquez and the club are on the same page and want the same outcome. 

In summary, Real Madrid is set to secure the futures of both Modric and Vazquez with new contracts valid until June 2025. 

Modric’s deal involves a pay cut, reflecting his commitment to the club, while Vazquez’s new contract underscores the club’s confidence in him as a reliable backup for their right-back position. 

These moves are part of Real Madrid’s strategy to blend experienced leadership with youthful talent in their squad.
