Vinicius Junior might be having the best time of his life since switching to Real Madrid from Flamengo in 2018. He scored twice to help his side beat Liverpool and won the UEFA champions league player of the week but former Barcelona scout claims that Vinicius would have be putting on the jersey of Barcelona if they had not been betrayed by his agents.
Andre Cury was head of the scouting department of Barcelona in Brazil. In a recent interview he claimed Barcelona were years ahead of Madrid in the chase for Vinicius even two weeks before signing for Real Madrid Vinicius in an interview said he was a Barca fan, Neymar was his idol and Messi was better than Ronaldo.
Cury further claimed that Vinicius father and agents were in Barcelona before they got invited to Real Madrid and the agents promised nothing was going to happen in Madrid. In his words he said “There was a commitment by word of mouth , the agents returned to Barcelona to close the deal. They shook our hands , disappeared and betrayed us”.
