Speaking to EFE (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has hailed Real Madrid and Brazil superstar Vinicius Jr as one of the best in the world on current form.

Moura has claimed that the 22-year-old Real Madrid winger has been fantastic this season and hopes he continues in the same vein of form ahead of the World Cup.

“Vinicius is an incredible player. He is one of the best in the world right now. He is doing very well and I am very happy for him, because he is Brazilian and that is very good for our country,” Lucas Moura said.

“The only advice I can give Vinicius is to continue doing what he’s doing so far. He has to be happy on the pitch, do what he knows best, dribble, but above all, be happy. Right now it’s fantastic,” he added.

Vinicius enjoyed the best season of his career last time out, playing a role in Real Madrid’s La Liga and UEFA Champions League triumphs.

The former Flamengo ace has been in brilliant form this campaign too, and has spearheaded the Merengues’ title defence especially with Karim Benzema having a slow start to the season.

In 13 matches across all competitions, Vinicius has scored seven goals and set up four more. With El Clasico coming up on Sunday, Carlo Ancelotti will look to the 22-year-old Brazilian to deliver the goods again in the final third.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
