Recently crowned LaLiga champions Madrid have completed a deal to sign 16-year-old Brazilian Vinicius from Flamengo in July 2018 for a reported €45million.

Vinicius Junior opted to join Real Madrid instead of Barcelona because he "preferred their project more" even though the latter offered him more money, his agent says.

"Madrid can sign players like Mbappe".

Vinicius agent also spoke about what he thinks if Real Madrid decide to sign more important strikers as Mbappé or Griezmann: "It will be bad news because Real Madrid have a lot of good players in the attack and if finally they decide to sign more, it could be a problem for the coach", Federico Pena said about the posobility of the signing of more players.

"I'm focused only about spending one or two more years at Flamengo to arrive at Madrid more mature".

"Many believe that it is madness [what Real Madrid are doing] but they were not the only ones involved in the supposed madness. I assure, the negotiating stance that Real Madrid took was better".

Talking about the success of previous youngsters to sign on at the Bernabéu playing a factor, he said, "Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Casemiro, Marco Asensio, Marcelo all arrived before the age of 22 and they're all very important players in the first team now".

"Barcelona sign players who already know the team plays, except in Neymar's case, so it is more hard as can be seen with Arda". We've got to see the player's development this year and what Madrid will need next summer. Then we'll know when he goes there.

"Vinicius will go to Madrid with his whole family. Such a young lad will need to be surrounded by his own".
