Zinedine Zidane 'gambles on Vinicius Junior' as Real Madrid boss prepares to hand Brazilian youngster a key role alongside Eden

Vinicius Junior will be Zinedine Zidane's first-choice right winger when Real Madrid kick off the new La Liga season in August.

The Br azilian, who doesn't turn 19 until next month, enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last term, playing 31 times after stepping up from the B team.

And despite Zidane spending big in the transfer market this summer, he is ready to hand Vinicius a starting role in his new look side.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, the former Flamengo star will start wide on the right, with £150million man Eden Hazard on the opposite wing.

Luka Jovic, who last week joined Real from Frankfurt in a £62m deal, will battle it out with Karim Benzema for a place up-front.

Vinicius burst into Madrid's starting XI last season after B team boss Santiago Solari stepped up to take charge following the departure of Julen Lopetegui.

He stayed in the team under Zidane, although recent reports in Spain suggested the Frenchman was willing to allow him to leave on loan this summer.

Former Br azil striker Ronaldo, who now owns Spanish club Valladolid, had hoped to use his links with Real to lure his compatriot for a season.

But Marca claim that Vinicius has done enough to convince Zidane that he has what it takes to be first choice next season.
