INSIDER: Real Madrid split over Vinicius Junior January plans

Real Madrid are reluctant to release Vinicius Junior for loan over the New Year.

Vinicius is currently playing for Castilla and it's been suggested Real will loan him out in January.

"Inside the club there are certain nerves, he was not summoned for Bilbao and it was expected to be against Espanyol when he was going to be called," said Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda on El Chiringuito de Jugones.

"I'm not saying he's going to play.

"It also raises the possibility of transferring him in the winter market. I already said that Rayo and Leganés were candidates and now there are two more: Valladolid of Ronaldo and Levante.

"(But) in the club they are reluctant to give him up because their statistics say that (Gareth) Bale is injured a lot and they could have to call on him (Vinicius)."
