Vinicius believes he's joining the best in the world at Real Madrid

Vinicius Jr confessed to not knowing exactly when he would be moving to Real Madrid but revealed that countrymen Marcelo and Casemiro helped with his decision.


It is not yet known exactly when Vinicius Junior will arrive at Real Madrid next season, but the player explained during a Youtube interview that the decision does not depend on him.

"I don't know," he said when asked whether his move would be in the summer or winter markets. "They will tell me when and I only give my approval, but I'll not participate [in the decision on dates]."

Marcelo and Casemiro influence

The Flamengo player also spoke about the influence that two of his future teammates had on his decision to move to the Spanish capital: fellow Brazilians, Marcelo and Casemiro.

"They helped me a lot with the decision. They told me that I had to be in the best team. I'm leaving the best team in Brazil to join the biggest in the world."

Imagining playing with Cristiano

The exciting young star - who has been directly compared with Neymar - was also asked about Cristiano Ronaldo's recent spectacular overhead kick against Juventus in the Champions League and his answer showed that he was counting down the days until he can play alongside the Portuguese number seven.

"When I saw the goal Cristiano scored against Juventus I thought that one day I am going to play with one of the greatest players of all time. I imagined myself celebrating there with him."
