Real Madrid has taken steps to secure the future of Vinicius Jr, extending his contract until 2028 and raising his release clause to €1 billion. The young Brazilian has proven to be one of the best football players in the world and has established himself as one of the emerging stars of the white club.
However, Saudi football has demonstrated its financial capacity in the past summer market and is now in search of a new star to replace Neymar Jr, who suffered a serious injury playing with Brazil. This situation has opened up the possibility for Saudi teams to actively seek a new high-profile signing to strengthen their ranks.
Vinicius Jr is in the sights of the Saudi league despite his recent renewal with Real Madrid. Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia, one of the most prominent teams in the Saudi Pro League, has expressed interest in the promising Brazilian crack.
Real Madrid has significantly raised Vinicius Jr’s release clause in an attempt to ward off any possible offers. However, the unlimited financial capacity of the Saudi league continues to generate concern at the white club.
The determination of the Saudi league to attract both experienced players and young talents with tempting offers represents a real risk for Real Madrid. The threat of losing Vinicius Jr, even with his new release clause, remains a latent possibility.
As time goes on, it will be interesting to closely follow the interest of Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia and other teams in the region in the young Brazilian. The fight to retain one of the jewels of world football will continue, and Real Madrid will be vigilant to ensure the future of Vinicius Jr at the Santiago Bernabéu.
