Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane have reportedly clashed over the immediate future of Brazilian youngster, Vinicius Jr, following the signing of winger Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
As per Sport, Zidane wants the 18-year-old to leave the club on loan in order to get more gametime next season, but that view is not shared by Perez who is keen to hold on to Vinicius as he believes that he is a superstar in the making.

The Brazilian who was also linked with a loan move to Real Valladolid last season, eventually established himself as a regular in the starting XI for the Los Blancos in the second half of the campaign, making 36 appearances while scoring seven goals and registering 13 assists.
Despite his impressive numbers, the arrival of Hazard in the summer could see the Brazilian's opportunities limited next campaign, as the Belgian would no doubt be first choice considering that he has been a long-term target for the Los Blancos and that the club have splurged out a massive transfer fee, which could rise upto £150 million.
It will be interesting to see how this situation pans out next summer, as Vinicius is widely hailed as the next superstar in world football.
