A Real Madrid goalkeeper, who played in the Premier League for Chelsea, has likened a reported Los Blancos target to Brazilian wonderkid and club teammate Vinicius Junior.
The 18-year-old has been a breath of fresh air in a campaign that has seen the UEFA Champions League history makers perform below par for the majority of the first half of the season.
Since completing his move from Brazilian outfit Flamengo to Real for a reported fee of €45 million (R707 million), Vinicius has managed to find the back of the net on three occasions for the club's senior side, while also being on hand to assist a further 11 goals in the 20 appearances he has made across all competitions thus far this season.
The teenager scored in Los Blancos' comprehensive 3-0 victory over Alaves over the weekend, resulting in some big praise from teammate Thibaut Courtois.
"Yes, he (Vinicius) does remind me of someone – Eden Hazard," the goalkeeper was quoted as telling Marca.
"He has so much self-confidence and belief at his age, and he plays boldly and without fear, so they are very similar.
"This victory (over Alaves) is important because they defend well and are a tough opponent, so we are happy.
"We are now in a good run of form but we are happy to be in a winning run, we have won every game since Real Sociedad and even then we deserved to win.
"Now there is an important run of games… the Copa del Rey, the game against Atletico (Madrid) and the Champions League."
