Vinicius entered a slightly different Los Merengues, who had just completed a cycle of phenomenal fame, and he achieved his success in a team that builds on the future.
Vinicius Jr is a key player in the team
Real Madrid put a much on the line when they paid €40 million for the teenager Vinicius Junior, but the Brazilian had already played 67 matches for the club by the time he reached his 20th birthday. These are pretty promising statistics, only Iker Casillas and Raul Gonzalez, two club icons who performed more at the same age. Julen Lopetegui handed the ex-Flamengo prodigy his debut in September 2018. Although he found the game without time easy to enter under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane, Vinicius is a crucial player in the team. Raul played 129 games for Real Madrid when he turned 20 on June 27, 1997, and had already netted 58 goals and won LaLiga title twice by then.
His potential is beyond doubt
Vinicius entered a slightly different Los Merengues, who had just completed a cycle of phenomenal fame, and he achieved his success in a team that builds on the future. However, he may be just a few days from winning his first championship in Spain. Iker had played 95 matches by the time he turned 20. And instead, as a Brazilian, he was just about to win the first LaLiga in his brilliant career. The goalkeeper has already won the Champions League and represented Spain at Euro 2000, while still a teenager. As his influence on Zidane’s team grows, the French coach will look for Vinicius to be the first next term. Especially with activity in the transfer market, likely to fall compared to previous years. “He is very young,” Zidane emphasized.
His potential is beyond doubt within the walls of Valdebebas. And it is seen as the future iconic figure at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, just like Raul was for many years.
