Video: £38m Vinicius Jr scores superb low free-kick to show exactly why Real Madrid paid the big bucks

Real Madrid’s teenage sensation Vinicius Jr showed exactly why Madrid made the 18-year-old a marquee signing with a great free kick for Real Madrid’s B team Castilla.

Vinicius Jr agreed a transfer to Los Blancos from Brazilian side Flamengo for a fee reported to be £38.7m by BBC Sport. The fee is a record high for a player under the age of 19.

Jr also showcased some trademark skills that European fans have been accustomed to when watching some of Brazil’s biggest stars in action.

Jr is still very much a raw talent for Madrid and whilst he may not fit in with new manager Julen Lopetegui’s first team plans just yet it is essential that the 18-year-old sharpens his skills as much as possible with Castilla.
