While he is about to extend with Real Madrid, Vinicius Jr is of interest to PSG again. And the club of the capital seems ready to annoy the Casa Blanca in this matter.
In a few weeks, from January 1, 2022 exactly, Paris Saint-Germain will start to tremble. If he has not extended his contract by then, Kylian Mbappé will indeed be free to negotiate with another team for a future transfer. Between a free start or an extension to finally leave in 2023, rumors have multiplied in recent months on the future of the French world champion. So inevitably, in case of departure of number 7, the club of the capital will have to find a replacement. And the Parisian leaders could interfere in a file on the other side of the Pyrenees.
As the daily advance ABC in Spain, the capital club wants to disrupt Real Madrid in the Vinicius Jr. case, author of an exceptional start to the 2021-2022 season with Casa Blanca (18 matches, 10 goals, 7 assists), the Brazilian winger is in the midst of discussions with its leaders for a contract extension, while his current lease already runs until June 2024. President Florentino Pérez and his teams offer him in particular to double his salary with a new five-year contract. And that’s where PSG comes in.
Better salary in Paris for Vinicius Jr?
According to information from the Spanish media, the Parisians want to get their hands on the international Auriverde (9 caps) by offering him a net annual salary of 17 million euros, much more than what he could touch in Madrid after extension , and a slightly longer six-year lease. Unfortunately, as ABC explains again, Real deems its 21-year-old player untransferable for the moment, especially after his fine performances in recent months. But once again, PSG has a major advantage.
This is nothing new, Casa Blanca still dreams of Kylian Mbappé. Last season, shortly before the summer transfer market, a rumor evoked the integration of Vinicius Jr in the transfer of the 2018 World champion to the Spanish capital. Finally, nothing happened but the Parisian leaders could still give it a try. However, everything will depend on the evolution of the situation of the Parisian number 7, which leaves doubt on his future as the winter transfer window is fast approaching.
