Cristiano Ronaldo met with £39.6m wonder kid Vinicius Jr as the Brazilian visited Real Madrid for El Clasico match.
The Flamengo starlet was visiting his next club with Los Blancos agreeing a £39.6m deal for the 17-year-old last summer.
The deal ensures Vinicius Jr will remain in Rio de Janeiro on loan next season, but his move will be rubber stamped next summer after turning 18 years of age.
The future of Real Madrid looked delighted to meet arguably the club’s greatest ever player, paying tribute on social media.
“Best in the world,” Vinicius Jr wrote in Portuguese, English and Spanish with five trophies to signify the five Ballon d’Ors Ronaldo has won in his career.
The Rubro-Negro have eased Vinicius Jr into first team football, but he has still managed four goals and an assist in Serie A in 32 appearances.
