And now Real Madrid are expected to reward him for his efforts with a brand new deal.
According to Spanish outlet Marca , Vinicius will sign a new contract when he returns for pre-season training in 10 days.
Real Madrid want him to receive more recognition for his growing influence on the squad, so officials have inserted a £1billion release clause into the deal.

Vinicius recently confirmed that he is eager to extend his current contract, which expires in 2024.

“It’s normal with age [to gradually develop]. I skipped many steps in training. I became a professional when I was 16 years old and still not fully formed.
“Real represented a huge amount of pressure, but I had the help of Benzema, Marcelo and Casemiro, who are very experienced players.”
He also revealed that he is confident that the club will build on it’s success in future, adding: “I have always been evolving. This season was good, so I hope the next one will be better.”
