Real Madrid signing Vinicius Junior stats better than Neymar, Gabriel Jesus in Brazil

Real Madrid signing Vinicius Junior is outshining Neymar in his time with Flamengo.

PSG ace Neymar was a star during his early days at Santos, but Flamengo's Vinicius Junior is performing better in his native country.

In 1,380 minutes of football at senior level this season he has scored eight goals, which is one more than Neymar did in his first 1,500 minutes as a professional with Santos.

The Carioca championship hasn't been any trouble for the teenager thus far; he has scored four goals in that, as well as three in the Brazilian first division.

Gabriel Jesus is the most recent successful export from Brazil and is arguably Manchester City's best forward at this moment and in his first 1,500 minutes with Palmeiras he scored seven goals, with all being winning goals.
