Real Madrid Unveil $71m Wonderkid Vinicius Junior

Brazilian striker Vinicius Junior, 18, was officially unveiled Friday by Real Madrid after completing his blockbuster transfer from Rio Flamengo.

Madrid signed the player two years ago for 45 million euros (71 million Australian dollars), in an agreement that would become official after its 18th birthday on July 12, 2018.

Vinicius Junior was accompanied on his trip to Madrid by his countryman and former Real Ronaldo player, who led Brazil to the World Cup title in 2002.

"Vinicius is a player with a lot of quality and talent and he is the greatest prospect for the future of Brazilian football," said Ronaldo.

The player said he was ready to take a chance.

"This is the best opportunity that a football player can have," said the young man who joined Flamengo at the age of 10.

"I am going to sacrifice a lot to show that I deserve this opportunity," he said during his presentation alongside Madrid President Florentino Perez.
