Vinicius (21) and Militao (24) will renew their contracts this summer. A strategic gesture from Real Madrid with which they will ensure two of the fundamental elements of their starting XI. Neither of them are close to completing their contract with Madrid. Vinicius does it in 2024 and Militao in 2025 but, being the two mainstays of this brand new Real Madrid, their salaries are way out of step with what they offer on the pitch. The attacker bills 3 million net and the central, 3.5. Behind them, only footballers like Lunin or Vallejo They charge less in the model. In both cases, with both Vinicius and Militao, although negotiations for the extension have not officially started, yes, there was a first contact to keep their environment calm.
Militao’s agent had a meeting with a senior member of the entity’s football organization in Manchester, coinciding with the Champions League semi-final first leg dispute against City. The Brazilian defender has established himself not only in Real Madrid, but also in the Brazilian team, in which he aims to start the next World Cup which will be played in Qatar, sharing the demarcation with Marquinhos. Several European teams have knocked on his door, Chelsea with great insistence. That is, by far (4,200 minutes) Ancelotti’s most used outfield player (Vinicius, by the way, is second with 4,090′).
Militao’s arguments for knocking on Real Madrid’s door are compelling. His dance partner in eleven, Alaba, has just arrived (with a long career behind him, at least) and touches 10 million euros net. And an amount close to that which Rüdiger will receive who, like Alaba, will arrive in Madrid free of charge. The German has already signed for four seasons.
The Vinicius affair exploded a few months ago, right after his spectacular start to the season, in which he scored 15 goals in 27 games. His last hat-trick places him among the best attackers (21 goals including 17 in the league, third top scorer after Benzema and Aspas). But he still maintains the meritorious contract he signed in May 2017 when he was only 16 and agreed to stay a little over a year on loan at Flamengo. before making his final leap to his beloved Real Madrid in the summer of 2018 when he came of age.
As in the case of Militao, Vinicius’ entourage also received the message that there will be no problem improving his contract (and, of course, extending it in time). It was his representative, Frederico Pena, who lit the fuse before the end of the year: “The normal thing, in a player who signs for five or six years (Vinicius signed six, from 2018 to 2024), is that when there are two years left, the talks start to resume.” Madrid’s idea is that they are part of a magic trident with Mbappé and Benzema…
