Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo: We'll take Real Madrid pair Vinicius Jr and Rodrigo

Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo Nazario has confirmed he'd like to take Real Madrid pair Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes on-loan next season.

Ronaldo helped Real sign Vinicius from Flamengo, while Rodrigo is due to arrive in Madrid this summer from Santos.

"What transfers will Valladolid realise? Will Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo arrive? I have already talked to the sports director and we will have to make five or six signings, because there are so many more we have sold," Ronaldo told AS.

"I do not know if we can pay the salary of Vinicius or Rodrygo. I wish they could come, everyone is worth it. If the opportunity arises, I open my arms to Florentino (Real president Florentino Perez) and he gives us whatever he wants. They are similar, with a lot of talent.

"I would also like to bring a young person from my country, but Real blew up this market. But the fans are calm, we will build a good team, that's for sure."
