Manchester United and Arsenal were reportedly keen on signing Vinicius but Madrid have led the way in the pursuit.

It was confirmed on Tuesday morning that Spanish side Real Madrid has completed the transfer to acquire the rights of 16-year-old Brazilian phenom Vinicius Junior to join the club by July 2018.

Vinicius can not link up with La Liga champions Madrid until after his 18th birthday next year, but the Spanish giants plan for him to stay at Flamengo until July 2019 unless both clubs agree otherwise.

The 16-year-old has played just 17 minutes of professional football in Brazil's Serie A, but is regarded as one of the best youth players in world football.

Jerebko scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting, which included a clutch late-game jumper before Bradley's victor . Kyrie Irving paced the Cavs with 29 points and seven assists and Kevin Love totaled 28 points and 10 rebounds.

In May he made his debut for the Flamengo senior team before signing a new contract that raised his release clause to €45 million.

The forward will officially become a Los Blancos player in July 2018, but he will remain with Flamengo until July 2019.

Barcelona are said to have also been in the running to land his signature, having starred for national side Brazil at the 2017 South American Under-17 championship in March.

'If he stays focused despite all the glamour surrounding him, he can get to a really high level'.
