It is expected that Brazillian wonder kid Vinicius Junior will be confirmed a Real Madrid player in a deal reported to be 45 million euros later today.

Medical staff along with club directors travelled from Barajas airport this week and are ironing out the final details in what is a truly jaw dropping deal.

What you need to understand is that, although extremely talented, the youngster has not yet made a single first team appearance for his hometown club Flamengo.

The 22 capped Brazilian U17 international is thought to be in line for game time this weekend when Flamengo welcome Atletico Minero in the Serie A opening fixture on Saturday.

Vinicius Junior will remain at Flamengo for this coming season until he reaches 18 years old when he can then complete his move into European football.
