Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr has revealed that he might not spend his entire career with Real Madrid, after a promise he made to his father.

According to the Brazilian international, he made a promise to his father to return to Brazilian club Flamengo.

“I think I could stay here my whole career,” Vinicius Jr said in an interview with L’Equipe.

“But the club of my life is Flamengo. I promised my father that I would come back one day. I have to keep this promise.”

He added: “I love life here in general and my family is doing well. When my loved ones walk around, they are recognised and wish us nothing but happiness. Little by little I discovered this new life, new emotions, a fervour…. Madrid is unique.”

Vinicius left Flamengo as a 17-year-old after just two seasons in the first team.
