Real Madrid fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Their two important players, Luka Modric and Vinicius Jr. will soon extend their contracts at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Luka Modric and Vinicius were key players who made Real Madrid achieve great results this season. Including when the club nicknamed Los Merengues met Chelsea in the Champions League.
Despite not producing goals, both were active and had a hand behind Real Madrid’s success in beating Chelsea with an aggregate score of 5-4. Both Modric and Vini were involved in the scoring process.
Modric provided assists to Karim Benzema in the first leg and Rodrygo Goes in the second. While the two assists contributed by Vinicius in each match were addressed to Benzema.
Thanks to these assists, Real Madrid can advance to the semifinals. This further proves their important role and Los Merengues have not been able to move on from both of them, especially Modric, who is no longer young.
Please note that Modric’s contract with Real Madrid is only valid until 2022. And because of the bossman’s ruling, the Croatian man can actually bind himself in the form of a pre-contract with another club.
But Luka Modric doesn’t seem interested in changing uniforms anytime soon. This could be a sign that he is interested in increasing his tenure at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Dipper, Real Madrid is reportedly preparing a new proposal for him. Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the club will meet with Modric in May to discuss a new contract.
Vinicius Junior is also included in the agenda, even though his contract is still valid until 2024. However, discussions about this new contract must be carried out immediately because the player may be tempted by offers from other clubs.
Seducing Vinicius, with a contract at Real Madrid at this time, is not a difficult thing. He is known as one of the lowest paid players at the Santiago Bernabeu and has not received a new contract since he was first recruited in 2018.
Superstars: Vinicius Jr, Real Madrid Saver and Goals in 100th Game
Real Madrid almost lost at home to Real Sociedad in the match jornada 25 La Liga, Tuesday (2/3/2021) early morning WIB. Luckily, Real Madrid has a player named Vinicius Junior.
Zinedine Zidane first benched Vinicius Junior at the start of the match. The young player only came on in the 61st minute to replace Isco.
Zidane’s decision to play Vinicius proved to be the right one, considering that Los Blancos needed additional power to hit after falling behind to Real Sociedad through a Portu goal in the 55th minute.
Vinicius who entered the field in the 61st minute became Real Madrid’s savior. He scored an important goal in the 89th minute.
Utilizing bait from Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius was able to rip the Real Sociedad net. The goal was successful in helping Los Blancos survive defeat.
Real Madrid closed the match with a 1-1 draw. Although they have not succeeded in shifting Barcelona from second place in the Spanish La Liga standings, Real Madrid should be grateful for one point thanks to Vinicius Jr.’s goal.
The goal scored by Vinicius Jr for Real Madrid in this match not only saved Los Blancos from defeat. This goal also has its own significance for the player.
The match against Real Sociedad was Vinicius’ 100th appearance with Real Madrid. The score of 100 games after making his debut with Real Madrid against Atletico Madrid on September 29 2018 is certainly a special milestone for Vinicius.
So far, Vinicius has scored 13 goals in 100 appearances for the Real Madrid first team. At the age of 20, Vinicius can still make many achievements and records with Los Blancos.
