  • Vinicius Junior is reportedly close to agreeing a new contract at Real Madrid

Real Madrid are reportedly set to offer star Vinicius Junior a huge new contract featuring a ‘anti-state clause’ to thwart mega-money clubs. 

The 21-year-old enjoyed an impressive season for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, playing a pivotal role as they became Champions League champions for the 14th time, netting the only goal of the final against Liverpool. 

The Brazilian forward now looks set to be rewarded for his efforts by the LaLiga champions with a new deal said to be close to being completed.

An official announcement of Vinicius’s contract will come in July as players return to the Spanish capital after their summer breaks, according to Marca. 

The new deal is believed to be a move on Madrid’s behalf to deter other clubs from making an attempt to sign the young star.

The Spanish outlet reports that the new contract will feature an eye-watering release clause of £870million – a dramatic increase on the already remarkable £300m the club have him tied down to.

The enormous release clause is being dubbed the ‘anti-state-club clause’ as the amount is expected to fend off interest from even the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United, who are funded by the nations of Qatar and Saudi Arabia respectively. 

The clause is believed to be purely symbolic as Vinicius has never given any indication that he wants or intends to open talks with other sides and is said to love living in the Spanish capital, heavily investing in buying and building a new house which he moved into last November.

The deal has plenty of bonuses for Vinicius with his salary reportedly set to skyrocket to £8.6m per year – almost triple his current £2.75m. 

The 21-year-old forward’s new contract is said to feature a release clause of ££870million 

However, the club are said to face a stumbling block in getting the deal over the line when it comes to the length of it. 

Vinicius’s current contract expires in 2024 and Madrid are keen to extend it to 2028 but the South American would prefer it to run until 2026 or 2027.

Vinicius joined Real Madrid from Flamengo in 2018 for £38m and has already played 170 times for Los Blancos, scoring 36 goals and providing 43 assists.
