Vinicius Jr. is a Brazilian winger/forward who joined Real Madrid in 2017 for a reported €46 million from Brazilian club Flamengo as an 18-year-old. Now 21 years old, the fiery forward has just had a breakout season for Real Madrid, helping his side win a 35th La Liga title and playing a big part in taking them to yet another Champions League final. He’s also represented the Brazilian national side, making his debut in September 2019 against Peru.

What is Vinicius Jr. salary?

According to the Football Manager database, one of the most in-depth ones in the world, Vinicius Jr. earns €215k per week before tax. For a season, that would equate to €10.32m a year before tax. Vinicius Jr.’s salary is fairly high for a youngster but this is to be expected at a big club like Real Madrid. He signed a new deal last August, extending his contract from 2025 to 2027. The new contract seems to have coincided with an upturn in his performances.

A source of frustration among Madridistas in previous seasons, the youngster is finally showing them and the wider world his potential. He’s arguably been one of the most improved footballers of the year and lots of credit has to go to Carlo Ancelotti but most of it should go to Vinicius himself. There’s still some way to go for Vinicius Jr. to reach his full potential. If he reaches that ceiling, the sky is the limit and so is a larger salary in the future.

How much does Vinicius Jr. earn per goal contribution?

There was never much doubt about his talent but there was a big question mark before this season around his end product. Vinicius Jr. has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, with 14 of them coming in La Liga and three in the Champions League (as of May 6, 2022). He’s also registered 15 assists in all competitions, with nine of them coming in the league and six of them coming in the Champions League. His partnership with Karim Benzema has put many a team to the sword this season.

If we are to divide his annual wages by the number of goal contributions he has made in La Liga, we find that Vinicius has earned €448.6k per goal contribution so far. If we are to divide his annual wages by the number of goal contributions he has made in the Champions League, we find that Vinicius has earned €1.1m per goal so far.
