Real Madrid wonder kid Vinicius Junior has been training with the squad this week and is ready to make his return this upcoming weekend against Villarreal. The Brazilian sensation will most likely come off the bench on Sunday but will get his first minutes since the injury he picked up during the home loss against Ajax.

Los Blancos have been missing Vinicius’ ability to dribble and he will surely be welcome. It’s important to note that the winger has not played for Zinedine Zidane just yet, so it will be interesting to see what the French manager decides to do with him once he’s completely ready to play.

Vinicius has completed a brilliant debut season for Real Madrid and he will only get better. It’s clear that he needs to improve his finishing, but he’s still 18 years old and will be expected to play relevant minutes for the team next season.
