Vinicius Junior has recently returned from injury and he is back amongst the goals as well. On the other hand, Joselu has been performing at a high level whenever given a chance and with Rodrygo struggling to produce this season, it looks like the first two could form a partnership up top for Real Madrid moving forward.
Vinicius’ return is certainly a major boost for the club. With him, Joselu and Jude Bellingham all scoring consistently, Real Madrid suddenly have more sources of goals than they have had for a while.
There could be more good news surrounding Vinicius soon as well. The Brazilian winger looks set to remain at Santiago Bernabeu for the foreseeable future despite there being some speculation over his future in recent months.
As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Vinicius’ contract extension is 101% sealed. It is set to be announced soon.
Real Madrid close to making Vinicius announcement
There has been a lot of confusion around Vinicius’ contract situation with Real Madrid. Several reliable sources have reported that he has agreed an extension since last year. But curiously, nothing has been officially announced by the club or the player.
Of course, that has left many fans confused and nervous about the future of Vinicius at Real Madrid. But it looks like all the doubts are set to come to an end soon.
The Brazilian international’s transformation under the management of Carlo Ancelotti has certainly been something to behold. He has gone from an inconsistent wonderkid to one of Real Madrid’s most reliable players, especially in big games. And many view him as the face of the club following the departure of Karim Benzema.
Thus, it is good news that a contract extension with Vinicius is sealed. He needs to be a centre-piece of this team for years to come.
