Paris Saint-Germain advised Vinicius Junior against renewing his contract with Real Madrid and offered him a 40 million euro per season deal to join the Ligue 1 club once his current agreement expires.
The above figure is 12 times higher than his current salary and four times what he would be doing when he extended his contract with Los Blancos.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez revealed on the Spanish TV show El Chiringuito that Vinicius had received a few offers but was considering staying at LaLiga Santander giants.
One of these approaches came from PSG, who made the first move last summer and has been seeking his signature since November 2021.
In their negotiations, PSG offered him a sign-up bonus, as well as more trading opportunities in Qatar.
Perez and general manager Jose Angel Sanchez are delighted to be informed of PSG’s departure. Both men love the country of Brazil because of his skills, expertise, and personality
PSG tried their best to arrange a meeting with Vinicius, but it did not work out and the Champions League 16th match against Los Blancos did not help.
Despite his respect for the club and gratitude for PSG’s interest, Vinicius seemed determined to stay. His contact with Real Madrid was too strong to be broken and final contact was made back in March.
Vinicius was constantly repeating to his agents, even when he experienced a decline in form, that he was not even willing to listen to the offer. Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United also knocked on his door, but they all received the same negative response.
Vinicius’ contract renewal is still on hold
If Real Madrid had made a promise to extend Vinicius’ contract, which would have been considered unfair, they would have had a chance to hear from the Brazilian.
However, Vinicius felt that his contribution to the club was significant and that the renewal of the contract was expected to be finalized after certain documents were submitted and reviewed, before being signed by the two parties.
Real Madrid wanted to bind him to a contract that would last until 2028, but they agreed that a new contract could expire in 2026 or 2027.
Vinicius’ agent’s proposal was for his client to receive 10m euros and bonuses if he signed up until 2026, or about 12m euros in case his contract was extended until 2027. Real Madrid accepted both of these proposals and an agreement will be reached soon.
