Madrid agreed a deal to sign the Brazilian winger for a fee of £38m when he was just 16 years old, but were unable to complete the transfer until the youngster turned 18.

The move makes Vinicius the second-most expensive player to be signed from a Brazilian club after only Neymar, and the most expensive player under the age of 18.

The Brazil youth international has now put pen to paper on a contract at the Bernabeu and taken part in his first training session with his new teammates.

Vinicius only made his senior debut for Flamengo a little over a year ago, but went on to score 14 goals in 69 appearances for the Brazilian outfit.
