Some rumors have even linked Vinicius with a move to leave the club but Real insists he will stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. And now they are reaping the rewards of that decision.
Vinicius took his game to the next level last season. He broke through the wall in front of the goal and found the back of the goal steadily for the first time in his career. In the 2021/22 season, he scored 22 goals for Real Madrid.
In the process, he became Los Blancos‘ second-highest goalscorer of the season with only Karim Benzema scoring better than the twinkle-toed Brazilian.
After a slow start to life in Real, Madrid Vinicius has soared to great heights and is living up to the billing of the next big thing in football. With the rise in stature, the youngster now shows the ambition to go with it.
In fact, after enjoying the most prolific season of his career so far in 2021/22, Vinicius is now looking to break the 30-goal mark in the ongoing campaign as reported by Marca.
He has already made a bright start to the 2022/23 season scoring two goals and setting up two more in four appearances in all competitions.
The Brazilian racing driver’s confidence is currently soaring and with the way, he started his campaign people will not let him go to achieve his ambitions and reach his goals.
Vinicius was awarded Young Player of the Year by UEFA and if he continues to do so more accolades will come in the years to come. Real Madrid may have one of the best players in the world and he’s still in his early 20s.
And according to the “Marca” report, Vinicius firmly believes that he can score 30 goals this season.
It’s nice to see that kind of ambition from a player his age because it’s clear that unless something unexpected happens in his career the Brazilian is destined to be the pinnacle of the game for Real Madrid.
