Brazilian sensation Vinicius Junior has earned millions of dollars through his talent and perseverance. After all, it was his Ballon d’Or teammate Karim Benzema who once said “Don’t pass to him.”
Vini Jr. has come a long way. The 22-year-old is one of the world’s deadliest wingers playing on arguably, the world’s biggest team, with two La Liga titles and a Champions League title to boot.
He signed from Flamengo to Real Madrid as a 16-year-old on a $48 million fee. He officially joined the Los Blancos in 2018 after he turned 18 years old.
While he originally had one of the lowest salaries on the squad, the Brazilian’s stellar performances earned him a lucrative five-year contract extension in June 2022. The deal included a one-billion-dollar buyout clause.
The attacker now earns $10.5 million per season and is estimated to have a net worth of $30 million.
But when Vini Jr. is not making fools of defenders on the field, he’s living the high life off the pitch. Let’s take a look at how Vini Jr. spends his millions.
Vinicius Junior’s houses
Vini Jr. grew up in a modest home in Rio de Janeiro. But given all his success and wages, the player has since upgraded to a luxurious villa in Rio located in the upper-class neighborhood of Barra da Tijuca.
The player likes to spend the holidays back at his beachfront home with his two children and girlfriend Maria Júlia Mazalli.
Vini Jr. also owns a multi-million dollar mansion in Madrid. His favorite part of the house is his closet, where he holds 100 pairs of shoes including ultra-rare Air Jordans.
Vinicius Junior’s cars
Unlike most footballers, Vini Jr.’s garage is relatively modest.
He owns three-different styled Audi cars: a $55,000 Audi Q7, the $80,000 Audi A7 Sportback, and a $75,000 Audi Q8 50 TDI luxury SUV.
The latter design is known for its spacious interior, advanced technology features, and powerful engine options. Vini received the car as part of the club’s sponsorship and winning the 2021 Champions League.
Vinicius Junior’s watches
In addition to his swanky shoe collection, Vini is also an avid watch collector.
The Brazilian even has his own watch, the Vinicius Jr Royal Edition Gold Apple watch. The piece is exclusive to 222 pieces and comes with Vini Jr.’s signature on the back of the case.
He’s also partnered with an Italian luxury watch brand Gaga Milano on two watches: the Vinicius Jr. SKELETON and Vinicius Jr DIAMONDS—this one he wore to the Champions League final.
He also owns a Rose Gold $6,000 Gaga Mila Napoleone and another version in red he once donned at a Miami Heat game during the offseason.
Vini Jr. continues to take his brand seriously, recently boycotting Nike in search of a new boot sponsor. Puma, who just signed a $12m per year boot deal with Jack Grealish are interested, as are Adidas, who already make Real Madrid’s iconic kits.
