Vinicius Jr, the Phenomenal Prodigy of Real Madrid

Currently, Vinicius Jr is one of the most important players in the Real Madrid squad. He has been a regular starter under multiple managers and is critical in the team’s attack.

Vinicius Junior has a bright future ahead of him. He is set to become one of the greatest players in the history of Real Madrid. He is set to become the next Raul or Casillas- Legend.
Ronaldo’s Record Intact
Vinicius achieved the 200 games milestone for Real Madrid after legends Raúl (21 years, 176 days) and Casillas (22 years, 151 days). He achieved this at 22 years, 205 days old.
A serious injury against Ajax delayed his achievement, but he regained his place in the starting lineup with the help of Zinedine. But it was under Carlo Ancelotti last season when we saw the true potential of Vinicius.
Vinicius marked this milestone in style; he scored against Valencia to mark his 50th goal for the club. Although he has a record in appearance, he falls short of the record for the fastest to 50 goals, which belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo.
