OFFICIAL: Real Madrid sign Vinicius Junior

The player will stay with Flamengo until the summer of 2019.

Real Madrid have completed the signing of Brazilian wonder kid Vinicius Junior. Per

Real Madrid C.F. and Clube de Regatas do Flamengo have reached an agreement over the transfer of Vinicius Junior's rights in 2018. The player will stay with Flamengo until July 2019 although he could join Real Madrid before then if the clubs decide so.


Vinicius is still 16 years old and he has huge room for improvement. He made his debut with Flamengo's first team two weeks ago and appeared to be nervous, something quite natural considering how young he is.

Either way, this i a long-term signing for Real Madrid as even when he joins the first team Vinicius might need some loan deals to get used to European football. Real Madrid's scouts are very high on his potential and that's why the club decided to make this move so early into his career.
