Soon-To-Be Real Madrid Star Prefers Messi Over Ronaldo

It was recently reported in Spanish media that Real Madrid have secured the services of Brazil wonderkid Vinicius Junior, but did you know he prefers Lionel Messi over Cristiano Ronaldo?

The current Flamengo player reportedly sealed a move to Los Blancos earlier this week, although it is unknown when he will officially begin training with the Spanish giants.

It has, however, been reported that, in an interview weeks ago, Vinicius admitted to preferring Messi over Ronaldo, and while we acknowledge that this should not be the biggest deal, it has caused trouble for other players in the past.

Martin Odegaard went through something similar when he signed for Los Blancos in 2015, as he had to delete tweets of his praise for Messi.

Vinicius also said this of Neymar, according to Marca: "Neymar is my idol and I admire him a lot. I watch a lot of his videos and I try to the same things that he does, and to even do them a little better."

Do you think Vinicius Junior will change his answer the next time he is asked the famous question?
