Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior is set to sign a lucrative contract extension at the Santiago Bernabeu following a stellar season at the Spanish La Liga club.

The Brazil winger, who was a transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain, has pledged his future to Real Madrid as he believes he can continue to grow as a player at the “biggest club in the world”.

Vinicius joined Madrid from Flamengo as a teenager but enjoyed his best season at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2021-22, in which he scored 22 goals in 52 games.

His performance this season, which saw him win the Liga-Champions League double in May with victory over Liverpool, has made him the transfer target of the biggest clubs in the world. 

But the 21-year-old has come out to insist that he intends to continue in Madrid. 

“I will continue in the biggest club in the world,” the Blancos ace told SporTV, as reported by GOAL.

“This is just the beginning. I have many things to conquer. I hope to have many trophies at the end of my career.

“It’s normal with age [to take time developing]. I skipped many steps in training. I became a professional when I was 16-year-old and still not fully formed.

“Real represented a huge amount of pressure, but I had the help of Benzema, Marcelo and Casemiro, who are very experienced players. I have always been evolving. This season was good, so I hope the next one will be better.”

Vinicius remains current contract at Madrid runs until June 2024, but according to reports, he will soon be signing a new lucrative deal that will put him in an excellent financial position.
