 Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior is all set to sign a new contract with the club.

The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the hottest young properties in European football over the past year, and it is no surprise that the Spanish La Liga giants are looking to keep him at the club for as long as possible.

According to Marca, the Brazilian will sign a contract with a release clause of one billion euros.

Vinicius has been a key player for Carlo Ancelotti’s side over the past year, and he helped them win the Spanish league and the Champions League.

The youngster scored the winning goal in the final of the Champions League against Liverpool, and he is only going to get better with experience and coaching.

The 21-year-old is far from reaching his peak and could develop into the next footballing superstar.

Vinicius has established himself as a regular starter on the left-hand side of Real Madrid’s attack ahead of big-money signings like Eden Hazard. The youngster will be looking to continue his growth with regular football at Santiago Bernabeu next season.

Real Madrid are certainly the most successful club on the planet; therefore, it is understandable why the Brazilian is prepared to commit his long-term future to the club.

Initially, the youngster arrived as a winger who would add pace and flair to the Real Madrid attack, but the Brazilian has improved significantly over the last few months.

Vinicius has now added goals and the ability to link up with his teammates to his game. The 21-year-old is already one of the best players in the Spanish league, and it will be interesting to see whether Ancelotti can help him fulfil his prodigious potential over the coming seasons.

The 21-year-old managed to score 22 goals and pick up 21 assists across all competitions last season. He is likely to be the focal point of Real Madrid’s attack in the coming seasons, especially with experienced players like Karim Benzema in their twilight years.
