Demand is high to secure the loan services of Brazilian teenager Vinicius Junior with the likes of Rayo Vallecano, Valladolid, Betis, Real Sociedad, Leganés, Girona, Espanyol and French side Nantes along with Serie A's Udinese all hoping to have the player in their ranks for the forthcoming campaign.
The player himself is reluctant to move away from the Bernabeu and yesterday Spanish TV show Jugones announced that the teenager is set to train with the Real Madrid first team squad but play in 2B with Castilla. After performing with the first team in pre-season games against the likes of Manchester United, Juventus, Roma and Milán this news has not been well received by the players entourage.
With few new faces at the Bernabeu over the summer transfer window the acquisition of the promising Brazilian was supposed to be a major source of enthusiasm for Real Madrid fans. Julen Lopetegui has made his position clear affirming that Vinicius would secure playing time in a manner to help him adapt to the rigors of the European game irrespective of the playing licence the player holds.
