According to reports, Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez are not on the same page at the moment with regards to the future of Vincius Jr.

Reports from Mundo Deportivo suggest that Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez are no more in the same direction. It is being claimed that the two men have contrasting opinions over the future of Vincius Jr. and Brahim Diaz.

Zidane is reportedly keen on loaning out Vincius Jr. in order for the young Brazilian to gain more experience. However, Madrid supremo, Florentino Perez has already told that the youngster will not be loaned out.

Real Valladolid are keen on giving the youngster more minutes on the pitch next season. Zidane feels that the experience should serve the Brazilian well. However, Perez considers the Brazilian an asset for the club, both on and off the field.

Vincius on his part, isn’t keen on remaining at the club if he doesn’t get enough minutes. And with the arrival of Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard, Vincius might struggle for game time. Zidane wants the club to bounce back quickly and is more keen on using well-established stars to get the job done.

Matters are different with Brahim Diaz. Zidane is a great fan of the former Manchester City player and is likely to give him more minutes on the pitch. Perez on the other hand, is keen on loaning the youngster.

Zidane has not been shy about his feelings either. In past, he has praised Brahim for his qualities. When it comes to Vincius, the Frenchman has often pointed out to the player’s deficiencies.

The start of last season might not have been great for Madrid but Vincius was one of their brightest spots. The youngster took a lot of responsibility on the pitch and he could improve a lot if Zidane gives him more chances to impress.
