Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Junior was once again the centre of attention against Valencia last night, with the attacker becoming the victim of racial abuse from the opposition fans.

It was the umpteenth time Vinicius was subjected to racial slurs by opposition fans in La Liga this season. And as one would expect, the incident did not go too well with the attacker, who complained to the referee, even telling him “I don’t want to play anymore”.

In the midst of this incident, MARCA reports Carlo Ancelotti had asked the Brazilian if he wanted to come off.

Vinicius refused to come off, as he did not want to bow down to the opposition supporters. He stood up against them, even taunting them by saying Valencia will go down to the second division this season.

A few Valencia players, unsurprisingly, were involved in an altercation with the Real Madrid attacker as well, including the goalkeeper. Vinicius was ultimately sent off after he slapped one of the Valencia players.

At that moment, Real Madrid players did not want Vinicius to come off. They were willing to leave the match if the Brazilian had opted to come off, in protest of the racial slurs.

After the game, Real Madrid have launched a formal complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office against the Valencia supporters, demanding due justice to be meted out.

There have been also speculations over Vinicius’ future, too, but it appears the Brazilian international has no desire to leave Santiago Bernabeu. He had a meeting with Florentino Perez in the morning and is committed to the club.

However, it is true that the player is dejected right now. He desperately wants things to improve in Spanish football.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
