In April this year, Real Madrid secured the signing of Brazilian youngster Vinicius Tobias from Shakhtar Donetsk, when players plying their trade in Ukraine and Russia were given an opportunity to leave due to the ongoing war.

Los Blancos signed the teenage right-back on a 14-month loan deal that will run until the summer of 2023. As part of the agreement with Shakhtar, Real Madrid also inserted a permanent purchase option worth €8 million for the 18-year-old.

And, according to MARCA, Real Madrid are yet to decide whether they will trigger the permanent buy clause for Vinicius Tobias or not.

Upon arriving, the 18-year-old defender was sent straight to the club’s Castilla outfit due to the lack of non-EU spots in the first-team squad at the time.

And after a slow start to life in Madrid, Vinicius Tobias is starting to come into his own for Raul Gonzalez’s side recently. Indeed, along with Sergio Arribas and Alvaro Rodriguez, the right-back has been one of the better performers for Castilla recently.

Tobias’ attacking purpose on the right flank has stood out even though he has made just one assist in 14 matches so far.

The youngster has shown enough indication that he has the potential to be a good investment for the club in the long run. With Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez in their thirties, adding a younger option in the right-back slot could make sense for the Merengues.

More so, considering the fact that Rodrygo, Eder Militao and Vinicius Jr have all received their Spanish passports and all three non-EU slots in the first-team setup are now free.

Real Madrid still have time to make a decision on whether they are willing to pay the €8 million and sign Tobias permanently. And while there have not been any indications about which way they will lean, the 18-year-old could prove to be a shrewd capture.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
