Real Madrid have signed Brazilian teenager Vinicius Tobias on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk until the end of next season.
The 18-year-old only joined Shakhtar from Internacional in January and is on the move again without playing a competitive game for the Ukrainian club.
Vinicius was unable to make his Shakhtar debut due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The full-back was able to join the LaLiga leaders as UEFA altered transfer rules, enabling clubs to sign up to two players from either Ukrainian or Russian clubs ahead of an April 1 deadline.
Vinicius will reportedly join Madrid’s Castilla squad for the remainder of this season.
Shakhtar revealed that Los Blancos have the option to make the deal permanent.
The Ukrainian club announced on their website: “He will play on loan for the Madrid club until the end of the 2022-23 season. Under the agreement terms, Real Madrid also has the option to buy the player.”
