Over the past week or so, Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr has been dominating all the headlines in the world of football, as he started a full-on war against racism in La Liga.

The 22-year-old superstar has been subjected to racist attacks on multiple occasions over the course of the ongoing campaign, with the latest occurrence coming in the game against Valencia last weekend.

Following the shocking incident, Vinicius called out La Liga, RFEF, and Spain over the lack of action taken against racism despite it becoming a recurring issue.

The Brazilian international has garnered a huge wave of support from fans, fellow footballers, and other prominent personalities from various different fields across the globe in his fight against this evil.

And, now, Vinicius’ former club, Flamengo are also planning a great show of support for the 22-year-old.

Indeed, according to MARCA, Flamengo will be wearing a special shirt to pay tribute to Vinicius during their game against Cruzeiro later today.

The shirt will have “Todos com Vini Jr”, which translates to “everyone with Vini Jr” written across the centre where usually the main sponsor appears.

A mosaic depicting the same message will also be displayed in the stadium as Flamengo show their support for their former wonderkid in the fight against racism.

On the backside of the shirt, another message “La Lucha Antiracista”, i.e., “The Anti-Racist Fight” will be written at the request of one of the club’s sponsors.

Vinicius made 49 appearances for Flamengo, scoring ten goals in the process and catching the eye of several top clubs across Europe in the process. However, it was Real Madrid who moved quickly and secured his signing for a fee of around €45 million.

And that investment has paid off big time for the Merengues as he is now one of the deadliest forwards in the game.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
