Vinícius Jr Bound For Real Valladolid?
Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo revealed on Thursday that he is interested in securing a loan deal for teenage Real Madrid forward Vinícius Júnior.
“He [Vinícius] is a great talent and Madrid are lucky to have him,” the 42-year-old former Real Madrid player told Desayunos Deportivos. “He is going to be a great player, without a doubt. I would love to have him at Valladolid. I made a request but it’s unlikely that they will make such a good player available to us.”
Vinícius has made eight appearances across all competitions for Real Madrid since joining the club in July. The 18-year-old Brazilian made his first Champions League start in the team’s 3-0 loss to CSKA Moscow at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.
Ronaldo bought a 51 per cent stake in Real Valladolid in September.
