The story of Real Madrid and Brazilians has re-emerged strongly in recent years. The club has historically seen greats from the South American country including Marcelo, Roberto Carlos, and Ronaldo, and the latest generation promises nothing less.
The center-back Vinicius Junior has signed a new deal runs that will see him at the Bernabeu until June 2027. And the release clause inserted is a staggering Є1billion – or £850million, which is the same figure as compatriot Rodrygo and Eder Militao.
All three players are indispensable to Carlo Ancelotti’s setup. While Rodrygo is not a regular starter just yet, the other two are already default picks in the XI. Needless to say, they will be a part of the club for at least the next decade.
Vinicius, who joined Los Blancos from Brazilian outfit Flamengo for €44.6 million in 2018, has established himself as a first-team starter at the Santiago Bernabeu. Last season, the 22-year-old registered 22 goals and 20 assists in 52 games across competitions.
Militao, 24, also cemented his place in Madrid’s starting lineup last season, featuring in a staggering 50 games across competitions. Meanwhile, Rodrigo registered nine goals and 10 assists in 49 games for the reigning La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners.
