Vinicius is happy to start contract talks with Real Madrid

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior has revealed his excitement ahead of discussing a new contract with the club and insists he is desperate to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 21-year-old remains under contract until 2025 but has this season taken the step from future prospects to first-team star, so he is expected to receive a substantial salary increase to keep him happy in Madrid.

In an interview with TNT Sports, Vinicius was asked if he felt he deserved a new contract or if he was frustrated that he had not been offered new terms, but the young Brazilian could hardly have been calmer about the situation.

“From the club they have not told me anything, but I am very relaxed because there is still a lot of time,” he said. “Of course I want to renew myself and stay here for a long time, but I am relaxed, everything comes at the right moment.

“Still, I have had a contract since I was 16 years old. It does not matter to me when I will renew or how much they will pay me. What is important is the satisfaction of being in the best club in the world.”

Vinicius has been in outstanding form so far for that reason, scoring seven goals and three assists in just 11 La Liga matches.

On his way into this season, he had only scored seven goals in 82 games, so his progress is pretty clear to see and a new contract is certainly on the horizon.

Despite the electric form, Vinicius was surprisingly left out of Tite’s latest Brazil squad for the upcoming international matches, with the boss choosing Leeds Raphinha and Ajax Antony in his place.

It may be a blessing for both Real and Vinicius as the young winger now no longer has to worry about quarantine rules or fatigue from traveling and can instead stay in top form ahead of tricky league ties with Granada and Sevilla later this month.
