Former Real Madrid star Roberto Carlos has been raving about his young countryman Vinicius, who is set to join Los Blancos at the end of the season.
The 17-year-old attacker, currently playing with Flamengo in Brazil, is one of the most highly-rated teenagers in South America and has drawn several comparisms to compatriot Neymar.
Despite his tender age, Vinicius will cost Real at least
“Being a Real player must be a source of great pride for him, but now he has a greater responsibility to improve day by day.
“I wish him luck and I’m sure he will be an idol at the club soon enough.”
“I won’t say that he’s ready yet because he’s still very young,” he continued. “But what Real Madrid did in thinking about the future of the club…I think it was a perfect move.”
