Vinicius Junior He has returned to preseason training this week. Together with him, the other two players of the Brazilian team have done it, Militao Y Casemiro, who disputed the Cup America until last July 10, when they fell defeated before Argentina (1-0) in the final. All three have finished their vacations and have made themselves available to Ancelotti, the midfielder being the only one who coincided with the Italian during his first stage.
It has been an important summer for Vinicius, that started in style when Tite decided to summon him for the South American continental tournament. However, his involvement with the Canarinha it was not what was expected: he barely played 64 minutes in the seven games his team played (He saw three of them complete from the bench), time in which he was not able to show his best level. This has reawakened rumors of a possible sale, taking into account the many suitors that the Brazilian jewel has and the presumable arrival of Mbappe at the end of August. PSG or United they have appeared in different international media as main stakeholders.
New property in Madrid
Despite the media buzz it generates, Vinicius only thinks about Madrid. His idea is still to settle in the white team and at no time has he contemplated changing this market’s team, so he ignores the exit rumors that have become common in recent summers. In fact, a house has been bought in the exclusive urbanization of La Moraleja. It is currently under construction, but it is the place where he hopes to live for many years and where he will move once the works are finished. The Brazilian’s plan agrees with that of the club, which continues to speak of the 21-year-old as a fundamental footballer in the short, medium and long term. At the White House there is little doubt that he will soon be a benchmark player if he maintains his progression.
After Lopetegui, Solari Y Zidane, will now be Ancelotti the one in charge of looking for the best version of Vinicius. Together they must leave behind that irregularity that has weighed down their image in recent times, in addition to improving in his great must: the goal. Last season, under the orders of Zizou, ended with 2,722 minutes disputed in which he scored six goals and gave seven assists.
Vini, like his team mates, It will be difficult for him to reappear in Madrid’s next friendly against Milan, to be played on Sunday (18:30) in Austria. The question is whether they will make it to the league debut in time. Mendizorroza against him Alaves next August 14 (22:00). For the next two weeks you will work piecemeal to be available if Carletto you need it.
