A number of Real Madrid players have been linked with exits in January but one particular star will not be leaving, according to Zinedine Zdiane.
Vinicius Junior impressed during his debut season with Los Blancos but has now seen his game-time reduced following the arrival of Eden Hazard and Rodrygo Goes.
As a resul of the lack of game time, the Brazilian has now been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu although Zidane was quick to silence those claims.
"Vinicius is not going to leave," Zidane said at a pre-match press conference, as per Marca.
"We have 26 players and it's true that he hasn't played much, but we're going to rely on him."
"Now is not his time, but it can be very quickly."
Brahim Diaz and Mariano Diaz have also been tipped to make a switch in the January transfer window.
"We'll deal with that in January," Zidane added.
"They want to be ready to be called up."
