Real Madrid will be hoping for three consecutive wins in all competitions on Saturday when they host Rayo Vallecano. Los Blancos occupies second place in the La Liga standings while Vallecano is sixth.
In the meantime, Real Madrid is working to lift the release clause for Vinicius Jr. Elsewhere, Liverpool are interested in the Los Blancos star who is no longer guaranteed minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu.
On that note, here’s a look at the most important Real Madrid transfer stories as of November 6, 2021.
Real Madrid plans to raise the release clause for Vinicius Junior to 1 billion euros
Real Madrid could raise the release clause for Vinicius Junior from €700m to €1bn, according to AS.
The Brazilian has played his part this season, scoring nine goals in 15 matches across various competitions. His performances pushed the Los Blancos team into action, as the star attracted the attention of European powers.
Vinicius Junior is among the lowest paid players at Real Madrid at the moment. However, Los Blancos are ready to give him a new contract at the end of the current season that will raise his salary significantly. The Brazilian could be offered a new six-year deal which would extend his stay at the club until 2028. Vinicius Jr could earn a net annual salary of around €8 million.
Interestingly, his salary increase will make him the third highest paid at Real Madrid, alongside Marcelo and Isco. Luka Modric and Karim Benzema will remain above him in the wage category, with the two players earning €10 million net per year.
Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale are the club’s highest earners, earning €15 per year in net wages. However, both are expected to leave Los Blancos at the end of the current season.
In the meantime, Vinicius wants to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Brazilian is keen to restore Real Madrid’s confidence in him.
Liverpool interested in Eden Hazard
Liverpool are interested in Eden Hazard, according to The Hard Tackle via El Nacional.
The Belgian failed to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans at Real Madrid, and it appears he will be leaving the club next year. Hazard has scored just five goals in 53 games for Los Blancos since joining them in 2019.
Real Madrid have run out of patience with the Belgian, and are ready to part with him next year. Liverpool has emerged as a destination for Hazard, with the Reds eager to take him to Anfield in January. However, Hazard’s huge wage demands could cause the move to unravel.
Roma enter the race to sign Luka Jovic
Roma are in the race to sign Luka Jovic, according to The Hard Tackle via El Nacional. The Serbian striker has cut an unfortunate number since his arrival at Real Madrid in 2019. Jovic scored just two goals in 39 games, an excess of requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu.
