Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, has firmly warned Paris Saint-Germain that their star forward, Vinicius Jr, is not for sale, reports Mundo Deportivo.

It is said that even with the arrival of Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid, Vinicius Jr’s position and importance at the club remain unchanged, as both players, despite playing in similar positions, are seen as crucial assets. 

Vinicius is currently the main player for the club, adored by fans at the Santiago Bernabeu, and a top contender for the Ballon d’Or. It is believed that Perez holds Vinicius in high regard.

In Madrid, the belief is strong that both Vinicius and Mbappe are among the most influential players in the world. 

The club feels they are compatible and can play together seamlessly. Now, it will be up to Carlo Ancelotti to make the most of their combined talents.

Vinicius is linked to PSG

Many speculated that Mbappe joining Real Madrid might lead to Vinicius’ departure, but this is not the case. 

Despite PSG’s long-standing interest in Vinicius as a potential counter-move to losing Mbappé, Real Madrid has no plans to sell the Brazilian forward. Even the player has expressed his desire to spend his entire career at Real Madrid.

It is said that PSG continue to monitor Vinicius’ situation closely, but convincing him to leave Madrid is a tough challenge. 

Perez, meanwhile, remains Vinicius’ strongest supporter within the club as he had personally ensured his signing when he was just 16, spending €45 million to bring him from Flamengo.

Perez is absolutely clear about Vinicius

Vinicius’ journey at Real Madrid has had its difficulties, but Perez has always believed in him and now enjoys seeing his successes, particularly in crucial matches like the Champions League finals.

Back in 2021, during an interview, Perez made it clear that Vinicius was not for sale. Vinicius is not for sale. Vinicius is not for sale, nor is he to be touched,” he stated.

Additionally, Vinicius signed a contract extension in October 2023, which keeps him at the club until 2027. His release clause is set at a staggering €1,000 million, making it almost impossible for any club to buy him out of his contract.

Real Madrid realized one of their biggest sporting and commercial ambitions by signing Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer.

Adhering faithfully to their Galacticos philosophy, signing Mbappe exemplified that the Merengues pursue not only elite talent but also renowned figures who carry global recognition.

While Mbappe has yet to play a single minute for the club, he is already busy breaking records at the club.

Mbappe’s shirt sales are through the roof

Indeed, according to El Chiringuito, within a mere day of its launch, Kylian Mbappe’s jersey sales have soared to an astounding 450% higher than those of Jude Bellingham.

Given Bellingham’s huge name in football, this impressive statistic highlights a fervent demand for the French star’s jerseys among supporters worldwide.

Moreover, the club’s online store has reaped substantial financial rewards, generating an impressive sum of €800,000 solely from the sale of Mbappe’s jerseys.

On top of that, they have sold more than 7,000 Mbappe shirts at the club’s physical store which will have provided further revenue boost.

Considering that the 2018 World Cup winner will don the number 9 shirt adds to the incredible demand, as several greats of the game have represented this number in the past, including Karim Benzema most recently.

Real Madrid struggling to keep up with the demand

Reports have mentioned that Real Madrid are appealing for patience from their fans as they handle the high volume of sales.

In fact, Real Madrid eventually posted a note on their website warning that delivery delays of up to 4-6 extra weeks may occur due to the great demand for Mbappe’s kits.

Tuesday, July 16 is set aside for his formal presentation at the Santiago Bernabeu, where a full house is expected to greet him, potentially with a large chunk of the fans wearing Mbappe jerseys.
