Speaking exclusively to The Telegraph, Frederico Pena, the agent of Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr, has claimed that the 22-year-old forward could spend his entire career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Having moved to Real Madrid in 2018, at the age of 18, Vinicius has grown into one of the most dangerous forwards in Europe, especially over the past couple of years.

The Brazilian international played a crucial part in the Merengues’ La Liga and UEFA Champions League double triumph last season and has enjoyed another spectacular campaign so far in 2022/23.

The 22-year-old is understood to have signed a new contract with Real Madrid until the summer of 2027 with a mammoth €1bn release clause even though it has not been officially announced as of yet.

And, his agent Pena has claimed that Vinicius could end up being a one-club man for his career, saying:

“Vini is very close with Real Madrid and he’s so happy there. He’s very at ease, he loves the club. He’s been there so long, he’s kind of turned into a man there.”

“But will he one day leave Real Madrid or will he be a one-club kind of player? I would tell you right now there’s a big chance that he’s the kind of player who stays in one club and makes history there and stays there for 15-plus years.”

Talking about a possible move to the Premier League for Vinicius in the future, his agent added:

“I can’t really see that happening right now, but who knows, these things change in football and there’s things you would never imagine seeing that happen.

I would just say if he were to leave Real Madrid someday, it would make no sense for it to be somewhere other than the Premier League.”

Real Madrid are interested in signing Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland in the future while Jude Bellingham is also likely to arrive this summer to team up with Vinicius, ushering in a new ‘Galacticos’ era at the club.

Talking about such a possibility, Pena said: “I think we’ll go back to a time where there’s a bigger group of players who will be in that spotlight.

For instance, Haaland is playing in the Premier League, which has the biggest global reach and that will play a part. But Haaland plays for Norway who are not fighting for the World Cup, so I think we will go back to a healthy time like when there was Ronaldo and Zidane and Ronaldinho, and other players. 

“Vini is such a professional athlete and he’s so disciplined, I think he will be at that level for the next decade and more, but I don’t think it will only be those three players (Vinicius, Haaland, and Mbappe). I think it will evolve in a different way.”

As PSG brace for the departure of Kylian Mbappe, it is set to mark a before and after in the history of the French club.

All signs point towards the 25-year-old superstar signing for Real Madrid on a free transfer, with an agreement between the two parties getting closer.

And, it may so happen that another PSG star might follow Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu, albeit a year later in 2025.

Hakimi could return to Real Madrid

Indeed, according to Mundo Deportivo, Achraf Hakimi could opt to leave PSG in the summer of 2025 and Real Madrid would be a likely destination for the Moroccan right-back.

Hakimi, a former Real Madrid academy graduate, has enjoyed success in Paris since joining them from Inter Milan.

However, the Moroccan international will enter the final year of his contract in 2025, with the deal expiring in 2026. And, both the player and the club could opt to part ways then if a new contract is not agreed upon.

And a return to Real Madrid could be on the cards for Hakimi. He is a player very well considered by Carlo Ancelotti.

The ex-Inter Milan man would also come to reinforce the right-back position, which currently has Dani Carvajal and Lucas Lucas Vazquez, whose contract expires at the end of the season, but could be offered a one-year extension.

Furthermore, Hakimi would be keen to return to the Spanish capital and would even be willing to reduce his current salary, which is over €10 million net. The lure of playing with Mbappe, one of his closest friends, will also be a major appealing factor.

As for Real Madrid, they need to soon find a long-term heir to Carvajal and a player like Hakimi, entering his prime years and familiar with the club could prove to be a shrewd signing.
