The Brazilian player’s uneasiness over the Madridista club’s signings is so evident that his stay at the Santiago Bernabéu could be in jeopardy if Florentino Pérez doesn’t make it.
Since Jude Bellingham stepped onto Real Madrid soil, the player most uncomfortable has been Brazilian Vinicius Junior. And that after the departure of Karim Benzema, who wanted to take on the role of the star Madridista paintingwas just that Carioca battering ram. But with the arrival of the English midfielder, he does not succeed.
In addition to the Briton, the possible arrival of French attacker Kylian Mbappé would see Vinicius Junior fall into a secondary role. That’s to be said on the subject of sport, because judging by salary, the Frenchman would become the highest-paid footballer not only at Real Madrid but also in Spain and even in Europe. Due to the tense situation, the former flamengo has requested an interview with Florentino Pérez.
Vinicius Junior moves to Florentino, his salary will increase significantly, or he will leave Real Madrid
Among the many explanations and arguments used to intimidate Mbappé’s arrival is that the Brazilian winger has asked the white president for a pay rise. But not just any number, but one so big that it would make him the second-highest-paid footballer in the squad. He would earn even more than Jude Bellingham.
Vini is currently the fifth highest payer, ahead of Courtois, Modric, Kroos and Alaba. But with the payroll updated, the Carioca’s idea is to be part of the podium where the French star and England star will be. Only with the relief of money would the left winger accept the supporting role in Madrid.
A big problem that Vinicius poses at Real Madrid
The merengue side’s signings so far total €128.5m, with the Englishman being the most expensive at 103 kilos. The madridista club now expects to pay around 200 million for Mbappé That could be more or less depending on how Florentino Pérez knows how to deal with it.
To make matters worse, Vinicius Junior is demanding a rather stratospheric raise. The sum demanded from him amounts to 200 million euros, spread over the remaining seasons. So if the merengue president found it difficult to get 150, now he has to muster 350 or 400 to have the Brazilian and the Frenchman in the same squad.
