Agent: Vinicius staying at Real Madrid

Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior is unlikely to return to Flamengo on a loan deal this January, his agent has claimed.

Vinicius joined the European champions in a €45m deal from the Brazilian club this summer following a deal being agreed a year before.

However, the 18-year-old has not featured in Madrid’s first team this season and Marca suggest that his game-time with Castilla could lead to a temporary exit.

“The contract has no option for a return,” agent Frederico Pena told Globoesporte, in quotes carried in the Spanish press.

“The move is what it is, any return to Flamengo in January is not likely.”
