Real Madrid to reward Vinicius with new deal until 2026
The player and the club have reached an agreement in principle on a new deal until 2026.
Vinicius Junior is close to signing a new deal with Real Madrid. The player and the club have reached an agreement in principle on a contract extension until 2026.
His current deal was due to expire in 2024, but Madrid did not want to take any risks and have accelerated the process to avoid complications.
New deal for Modric
The agreement, still pending a few details, is almost closed and will be made official in July. Madrid have also tied down veteran midfielder Luka Modric until 2023.
Eder Militao, whose deal expired in 2025, will also sign a new deal. Vinicius earns around €3 million net per season, one of the lowest last season at the club along with Militao. The centre-back is paid around €3.5 million net.
Only Jesús Vallejo and Andriy Lunin earn less than the two Brazilians. The reason being is that Vinicius is still on the contract he signed in May 2017 when he was a 16-year-old and agreed to spend just over a year on loan at Flamengo before making his definitive jump to Real Madrid in the summer of 2018.
It was his agent, Frederico Pena, who signalled the start of negotiations in an interview with Globoesporte: “The normal thing for a player who signs for five or six years is that when there are two years left on his contract, talks begin for a contract renewal”.
Vinicius is currently on holiday in the United States, where on Saturday he will take part, along with Militao in a meeting between Roberto Carlos’ friends and Ronaldinho’s friends to celebrate 20 years since Brazil won the 2002 World Cup.
On his return from his holiday abroad, everything will be finalised between the player and the club and made official.
