The Premier League clubs could bring the Selecao star to England amid the ongoing storm over racial abuses.

Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly set to battle for Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr.

The Brazilian is one of the top talents in the world now, and this has attracted a lot of interest in the 22-year-old.

Recent racist chants against him have made him consider a move out of La Liga. Against Valnecia, the Brazilian was subjected to racist abuses, and thereafter he accused La Lia and Spain at large for how they are dealing with racism cases.

He joined Los Blancos in 2018 when he was signed from Flamengo, and he has gone on to be a key player for the Spanish giants.

This season, he has 23 goals and 21 assists, for a total of 44 goal contributions. While his contract runs until 2024, Real Madrid are expected to fight tooth and nail to keep the youngster at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Reports indicate Los Blancos have a plan to extend the deal to 2027, which would mean that they will hold onto their prized asset despite interests from elsewhere.

In the game against Valencia, the forward was not only racially abused, but he was also sent off. These events might force him to consider a move as Liverpool and Manchester United watch how events unfold.
