Vinicius loan "difficult"
The majority shareholder at the Liga club acknowledged that the desire to bring in the young Brazilian, to help his development as well as adding to the attacking options in Pucela, is not an easy operation to complete.
"We do not have that money, but of course I would like to see Vinicius at Valladolid," said the Madrid and Brazil legend. "We have already requested a loan deal from Madrid, but he is a huge talent and Madrid want to hold onto him. Florentino [Pérez] told me that it would be difficult."
