The recent Real Madrid player, Vinicius Junior, decided to sign with Los Blancos despite Barcelona offered him a higher salary. He finally chose Madrid because he had a previous agreement with the team managed by Zidane and because he always said that he is a Real Madrid supporter and that his dream is to play at Santiago Bernabéu.
Vinicius Junior agent, Federico Pena, explained in an interview why he finally decided to sign with Los Blancos ” Barcelona’s economic offer was higher than the one from Real Madrid but as we arrived to an agreement with Los Blancos, we said to them that they didn’t have to equalize that offer. Vinicius liked Real Madrid’s project and he is a supporter of this team, so the decision was quite easy. Many people say that Vinicius chose the team that offered him a highest salary, but I can confirm it’s not true”, Federico Pena affirmed after all the rumors about Vinicius Junior signing. The Brazilian young jewel had many important offers from other teams, with a higher salary that in Real Mardid, but he finally chose the capital of Spain because of several reasons.
Vinicius agent also spoke about what he thinks if Real Madrid decide to sign more important strikers as Mbappé or Griezmann: “It will be bad news because Real Madrid have a lot of good players in the attack and if finally they decide to sign more, it could be a problem for the coach”, Federico Pena said about the posobility of the signing of more players.
