Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior claims that he wants to stay at the Bernabeu "forever" despite previous speculation over a loan move away from the club.

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior has expressed his desire to remain at the Bernabeu for the remainder of his career.

The 20-year-old has struggled to force his way into Zinedine Zidane's lineup on a consistent basis this term, starting 12 La Liga games and notching up two goals and three assists.

Vinicius was linked with a loan move to the Premier League in January following his underwhelming stint in the Spanish capital, but the Brazil international has affirmed that he wants to don the white jersey "forever".

Speaking to TNT Sports, Vinicius said: " I'm always focused on wanting to be at Real Madrid, being with the best players, learning alongside the best players.

'I'm 20 years old and it seems as though I've been playing for many years, but I'm only at the beginning of my career. I'm learning a lot from the players that are here, those that play in my position. I want to stay at Real Madrid forever."

Due to Real Madrid's injury crisis, Vinicius is expected to start on Wednesday night when Real Madrid travel to Atalanta for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 battle.
