Vinicius Jr’s continuity at Real Madrid not guaranteed after recent events – report
A few weeks ago, it seemed impossible to imagine Vinicius Jr representing a crest other than that of Real Madrid. The youngster was after all the team’s most important player and is seen as their bannerman for at least a decade.
His situation, however, has taken a steep turn in recent days. The events at Mestalla on Sunday night have hurt the Brazilian deeply and his outrage at the Spanish League for taking no measures is warranted. That, in theory, poses a direct threat to his future at Real Madrid.
According to reports from Mario Cortegana of The Athletic, a source close to Vinicius has said that though there was no chance of him leaving the club until recently, the possibility has now opened up.
His decision is directly linked with Real Madrid’s stance on his situation and he expects prompt action in his favour as opposed to mere good intentions. If the winger feels he is fighting alone, he will consider a departure from the club as a real option.
Given the half-chance that Vinicius might leave, some of Europe’s elite have already appeared at his doorstep with lucrative proposals. The biggest such name is that of Paris Saint-Germain who are attentive to his situation.
Real Madrid have put their foot on the accelerator with respect to the youngster’s situation and even raised a complaint with the Attorney General’s office and specifically the Prosecutor’s Office over the racial slur targeted at their star player.
It appears that the Brazilian will stay at Real Madrid for next season but repeated instances of such abuse could cut short his stay in Madrid in the long run. After all, Javier Tebas’ reaction to the entire situation was far from reassuring as he came out on his Twitter to say,
“Before criticizing and insulting LaLiga, it is necessary that you inform yourself properly Vinicius. Do not let yourself be manipulated and make sure you fully understand each other’s competencies and the work we have been doing together.”
Fabrizio Romano, though, has assured that Vinicius wants to stay at Real Madrid and fight against racism. But as per Cortegana if he does not feel the required support from the club, the possibility of an exit is not ruled out.

Real Madrid youngster impresses Ancelotti, Kroos, and Messi in training – report
Real Madrid have a host of talent coming through their youth setup, with the likes of Sergio Arribas, Vinicius Tobias, and Nico Paz impressing the club through their performances with Real Madrid Castilla.
Paz, especially, has been touted as one of the biggest talents coming through the Madrid academy. He is considered ‘the’ talent from the youth setup, with a lot of expectations around him.
A midfielder by trade, Paz has seemingly impressed two of the biggest names in world football, according to MARCA.
One of them is Toni Kroos, who has watched Paz closely during training with the senior team. The German complimented him, as well, saying, “This boy should train with us every day because he is terrific.”
He has also seemingly created an impression on none other than Lionel Messi, while the two were training with Argentina together.
Carlo Ancelotti has also joined the praise parade for Paz, “He has projections to play in the first team. He is doing very well with Arbeloa and the times he was used by Raúl he has also done very well at Castilla.”
Paz has already been included in the squad list for two games so far this season, and will continue to train with Real Madrid’s senior squad. He is also expected to be a part of los blancos’ pre-season tour, after which he could get minutes next season.
Real Madrid have renewed the Argentine’s contract up until 2027, as they wanted to lock him down quickly for the long-term. There, is however, a chance he could leave Madrid on lock next season to get minutes with a senior division side.
