Real Madrid will be forced to pay a much larger fee than expected if they want to sign Flamengo’s Vinicius Junior after the starlet signed a new contract with his Brazilian club—complete with a £38 million release clause.
The club’s official website confirmed Vinicius put pen to paper on a new deal, although James Benson of the Daily Star noted the length of his extension isn’t yet known.
Benson also reported Real are alleged to have an agreement in place to sign the 16-year-old, although their decision to invest in his services may be impacted by the recent hike in price.
