Vinicius Junior is widely regarded as one of, if not the best player in the world at present, particularly among his Real Madrid teammates.
This comes after Karim Benzema was awarded the Ballon d’Or last season, and the squad now feels they have another top player among their ranks.
Vinicius has been compared to Kylian Mbappe for some time and has scored or assisted in every knockout match in the Champions League over the past seven games.
With 44 goal contributions in the top five European leagues, only Mbappe and Erling Haaland have more. Dani Carvajal recently commented on Vinicius’ outstanding performance, stating that he has no doubts about the Brazilian’s abilities, and many of Vinicius’ teammates have relied on him more than Benzema this season.
This rapid rise has established Vinicius as one of the best players in the game currently.
