Real Madrid coach Zidane tells Ronaldo to forget about Vinicius Jr

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has no plans to release Vinicius Junior for loan this summer.

The arrival of Eden Hazard from Chelsea has sparked talk of the young Brazilian being sent away on-loan next season. Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo has already confirmed their interest.

However, Marca says Zidane wants to keep hold of Vinicius and already has earmarked a new role for the youngster.

The Real boss wants to switch his role from the left-side of midfield to the right, with Hazard operating more centrally.

Indeed, Zidane views Vinicius as a key part of his attacking plans for next season.
