Brazilian star arrives in Madrid

The wait is over and Vinicius Junior has finally arrived in the Spanish capital to start his new chapter as a Real Madrid player.

Having landed at Madrid Barajas airport at 13:20 CEST on Saturday afternoon, the 18-year-old did not appear in T4 for another hour-and-a-half.

Supporters of both Real Madrid and Flamengo awaited him at the airport, though the player did not speak a single word as he stopped to pose for pictures and sign autographs.

The Brazilian will be present for training under Julen Lopetegui on Monday and presented as a new signing on Thursday.
