Seven La Liga sides, along with French side Nantes and Italian outfit Udinese, are interested in taking Real Madrid youngster Vinicius Junior on loan this season.

According to Spanish outlet AS, the Brazilian prodigy is in high demand since news broke that Madrid were considering allowing the forward to go out on loan in order to gain some experience.

Vinicius Junior joined Real Madrid this summer for a fee of €46m, with the deal having been agreed with his former club Flamengo a year prior to his move to Spain.

The forward was an unused substitute during Madrid's 2-0 victory over Getafe last weekend and is likely to be kept out of the side for much of the season if he stays due to the wealth of attacking talent possessed by Julen Lopetegui's side.


Vinicius himself is reportedly keen to stay at the club this season and does not want to go out on loan, but has been told he is likely to play with Real Madrid Castilla, the club's reserve team, if he stays put.

However, Lopetegui has suggested that Vinicius will be given ample playing time for him to adapt to the rigours of the European game wherever he plays this season, implying that the 18-year-old will be given first-team opportunities should he remain at the club past next week's European transfer deadline.


Madrid have had a relatively quiet summer in the transfer market, with more high-profile departures than outgoings such as Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus. However, it seems the club will not be pressured into rushing Vinicius's development when they consider it too early.
