Vinicius Junior commits future to Real Madrid amid PSG links: ‘I will continue in the biggest club in the world’

The attacker will sign a lucrative contract extension in Santiago Bernabeu after his best season so far

Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior has pledged his future to Real Madrid amid reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain and believes he can continue to grow as a player at the “greatest club in the world”.

Vinicius enjoyed a breakout season at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2021-22, scoring 22 goals in 52 games to mark a new personal best since signing with Flamengo as a teenager.

It was a memorable year for Madrid, who took a Liga-Champions League double in May with a win over Liverpool to win their 14th European title.

What did Vinicius say about the future of Madrid?

“I will continue with the biggest club in the world,” said the champion of Blancos SportsTV

“This is just the beginning. I have a lot of things to conquer. I hope to have a lot of trophies at the end of my career.

“It’s normal with age [to take time developing]† I skipped a lot of steps in training. I turned pro when I was 16 years old and still not fully formed.

“Real faced an enormous amount of pressure, but I had the help of Benzema, Marcelo and Casemiro, who are very experienced players. I have always developed. This season has been good, so I hope the next one will be better.”

the bigger picture

Vinicius is under contract with Madrid until June 2024, but according to reports he will sign a new contract soon.
