REVEALED: Chelsea make surprise attempt for Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Jr

Chelsea have made a surprise attempt for Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior.

It emerged over the weekend that Vinicis was unsettled after the lack of action he saw during the restart. Indeed, Vinicius was left on the bench for their Champions League elimination by Manchester City on Friday night.

AS says Chelsea sought to take advantage and quickly made an enquiry about Vinicius' situation. But the approach was given short shrift by Real.

Real president Florentino Perez is refusing to consider losing Vinicius, so much so that he is upset with Zidane over the way the Brazilian has been ignored over the past month.

For his part, Vinicius appreciates the support of the president and has no plans of agitating for a move away, no matter who comes forward.
