Video: Vinicius’ highlights against Manchester United in Real Madrid debut

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Jr. completed an interesting debut in the opening game of Real’s pre-season against Manchester United.

While the Brazilian wonder kid showed that he is still raw and lacks the experience to contribute regularly this season, he also proved to be a very intriguing talent which could be starting for Madrid in the near future.

Vinicius could be sent on a loan deal this summer even though both the club and the player himself appear to be keen on him to stay in the Spanish capital. If that’s the case, Vinicius would play some games for Castilla while training with Real Madrid every single day. However, if Lopetegui is not planning on giving him consistent minutes, that could ultimately hurt his development as he needs minutes to improve and gain experience at a higher level than what Castilla can offer while they are still in the Segunda Division B.
