Four years ago today, Vinicius Jr was officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player.
The Brazilian was just 18 when Real Madrid signed him from Flamengo for nearly 50m, in what was a controversial and risky signing at the time.
Four years on, Vinicius just finished a season where he was the best winger in both La Liga and the Champions League, and in all likelihood, a future Balon D’or candidate. His market value is now 110m according to Transfermarkt.
Here are some photos of the presentation that day:
