Real Madrid beat Barcelona for €45m wonderkid Vinicius Jr

Real Madrid beat Barcelona for €45m wonderkid Vinicius Jr

Despite the excitement surrounding Vinicius Junior's signing, Real fans may have to wait a while before they see him in action.

Real Madrid have agreed to sign 16-year-old forward Vinicius Junior from Flamengo for a reported £38m. Neymar's transfer is the subject of a court case, with Barcelona saying that the fee was 57.1 million euros.

Vinicius can not link up with La Liga champions Madrid until after his 18th birthday next year, but the Spanish giants plan for him to stay at Flamengo until July 2019 unless both clubs agree otherwise.

"The player will remain at his current club until July 2019, although he will be able to play for Real Madrid before then if both clubs agree to it".

The teen prodigy recently turned pro two weeks ago, making a pair of appearances off the bench for Flamengo in the Brazilian league.

The teenager has impressed for his country at youth level, topping the scoring charts with seven goals as Brazil won the South American Under-17 Championship in March.

Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United were also linked with Vinicius Junior, who has played only 17 minutes for Flamengo's first team having only made his senior debut earlier this month.

The new "real" in "Flamengo" got to the age of 10.
