The 18-year-old has now become an established player in the Los Blancos line-up following a slow start to the season after his €45million from Flamengo.

Vinicius has registered three goals and 10 assists across all competitions this season and Fernando Morientes has great belief in the Brazilian.
"We were all keen to see Vinicius play, to see how he develops. I think he's a very impressive player, he's very good in one-on-ones and making runs,"  Morientes was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
"He's still very young, we need time to see the kind of player he will be but if he continues to play the way he is now he'll be a world-class player, no doubt.
"We should give him time though, you can't burden such a young player with too much responsibility especially at a club like Real Madrid."
