He joined the club in 2018 from the Brazilian side Flamengo. He has starred this season alongside Karim Benzema as the Spanish giants won the La Liga and the Champions League.

The 21-year-old scored 22 goals and provided 20 assists. His biggest goal this season came in the final when he turned in a Federico Valverde cross to win Real Madrid’s 14th Champions League title.

The Daily Mail now reports that the Los Blancos are ready with an offer worth 50 million euros. The deal will see Vinicius sign a five-year extension and will earn a fee in the region of 170,000 euros per week.

The new deal will prove how much Real Madrid values the Brazilian who, at only 21 years of age, has already lit up the grandest of football stages.

Eden Hazard assures Real Madrid fans that next season will be better

Sports Brief also reported that Eden Hazard had offered a message of optimism to Real Madrid fans after their Champions League triumph. Hazard assured the fans that next season will be his chance to show the world what he is capable of.

The winger was signed from Chelsea in 2019 but has endured a difficult three years in Madrid due to constant injuries.

This season, the Belgian has only started seven games. Vinicius Junior has enjoyed a remarkable campaign that Hazard has had to contend with a place on the bench.
