Vinicius Jr. was making roughly 3 million euros per season at Real Madrid, according to reports from Defensa Central, but Manchester United was ready to present a jaw-dropping deal that exceeded 20 million euros each season, which is equivalent to £335,000 a week. Despite this, the Brazilian international player made the decision to stay at the Bernabeu and signed a contract that will pay him 10 million euros per season.
Vinicius Jr. has carved out a name for himself as one of the most promising offensive players in the world, and he has enjoyed extraordinary success while playing for Real Madrid.
He is most famous for scoring the game-winning goal in the final of the UEFA Champions League, which was played against Liverpool in Paris the previous year. In the 2022–2023 season, he made a huge contribution to the 14-time defending European champions by scoring 23 goals and registering 21 assists across all competitions.
The quick forward has already made nine starts in this season’s games under Carlo Ancelotti’s management. He has personally contributed to a total of six goals in this campaign, including three goals and three assists. His major position is on the left side, which corresponds with the one that Marcus Rashford plays at Old Trafford. Rashford was an outstanding performer for Manchester United in the previous campaign.
Vinicius Jr. would have unquestionably bolstered Manchester United’s offensive under Erik ten Hag, but the club’s primary problem remains its defensive fragility even though it is clear that Vinicius Jr. would have done so. Since the squad has a history of giving up goals, it is very necessary for them to make improving their defence their top priority during the forthcoming transfer window.
