Vinicius to return for Real Madrid at Getafe

Vinicius Junior will return to the Real Madrid first-team squad for their trip to Getafe on Thursday, report Diario AS.

The Brazilian teenage sensation has missed six weeks of action but has now recovered from a torn ankle ligament sustained against Ajax in their Champions League exit.

Initially it had been feared he would miss the rest of the season but he returned to training earlier this month and is now ready for a return to first-team action.

18-year-old Vinicius has made 28 first-team appearances for Los Blancos since his €45m summer move from Flamengo, netting four goals.

The teenager had earned his first Brazil call-up for the friendly matches against Czech Republic and Panama but was forced to withdraw because of the injury.

Thibaut Courtois and Mariano Diaz have also returned to training for Madrid, but Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Odriozola are out through injury.
