TRANSFER INFO

Vinicius Junior would be available for a fee under 1M if you play your cards right. Just add some future clauses and some extra installments and you would be good to go in signing this young Wonderkid. For a player of his age and for that kind of fee it is considered to be a good bargain. If you are managing an English club you will be having some difficulties obtaining a work permit. Despite you should have a go, even if you know beforehand a Work Permit will be difficult. Signing him and sending him out on loan for a few years could earn you some easy money. Or if you are lucky he will develop into an international for Brazil, which will allow him to get a work permit.

PROS

Vinicius is a technical player despite his young age. He shows some good skill in Crossing, First Touch and Technique. Good qualities for a striker that loves to move into channels and assist a fellow attacker.

CONS

Well what can you expect from a 15-year-old? Of course there are many attributes he needs to improve. But if we have to name some weaknesses it would be Mentally. Anticipation. Bravery, Concentration, Off the Ball, Teamwork and Work Rate are all under 10 and need some serious improving. These attributes will develop naturally of course, but make sure to pair him up with a hard working mentor.
