Manchester United have been interested in signing Vinicius Jr. from Real Madrid and even offered him a lucrative deal.
However, the Brazilian international made his decision to extend his stay with the Los Blancos.
According to Defensa Central, Vini was earning around 3 million euros per season and Man Utd were ready to agree a deal worth more than 20 million euros per season, £335,000 a week.
However, the 23-year-old rejected big money deals to sign a contract worth 10 million euros per season with the Bernabeu outfit.
The South American star is one of the best attacking players in the world. He has already won every major prize with Real Madrid.
Not to forget, he netted the winning goal in the final of the UEFA Champions League in Paris against Liverpool last year.
In the 2022-23 season, Vini netted 23 goals and also provided 21 goals in all competitions for the 14-time European champions.
As far as the current campaign is concerned, the speedy attacker has started 9 games under Carlo Ancelotti thus far and directly contributed in 6 goals (3 goals and 3 assists).
The former Flamengo playmaker mainly featured on the left flank and at Old Trafford, the position is occupied by Marcus Rashford, who was our best player last season.
Vini would have further improved the offense for Erik ten Hag but at the moment, the biggest concern at Old Trafford is the defense.
Man Utd have leaked goals on regular basis and must improve the backline on a priority basis in the next transfer window. What do you think?
