Real Madrid sensation Vinicius Junior has been out of the last few games after picking up a bad injury during the return leg of the Champions League Round of 16. The Brazilian attacker became a key player for Los Blancos and wants to return to the pitch as soon as possible even though Madrid have nothing to play for.

However, Vinicius will not be available when Madrid face Athletic Bilbao this Sunday, as he has not rejoined the squad in training just yet.

"I miss playing at the Santiago Bernabeu," tweeted the winger this Thursday.

Vinicius' role under Zinedine Zidane is still uncertain, given that he has not played for the French coach just yet. It will be interesting to see what Zidane has in mind given that Los Blancos appear to have interest in Eden Hazard -who plays on the left wing- as well.

Vinicius is still very young but has shown enough potential to be a relevant player for Madrid next season, no matter what Los Blancos decide to do in the transfer market.
