Real president Florentino Perez is eager to bring the Brazil captain back to Spain, though won't get a clear run as former club Barcelona have also been in contact with his camp this season about a return.
However, Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda says Vinicius could help Florentino convince Neymar about moving to Madrid.
He explained: "Neymar is the great objective of Florentino Pérez. Now they have found that there is a connection, which is Vinicius Júnior.
"What's more, last week he invited him to his birthday, but he said no because he was focused on the game against Barcelona."
Vinicius has become good friends with Neymar and has spoken of their friendship in recent weeks.
"In Real Madrid or in the national team, I want to play with Neymar," he has stated.
