Carlo Ancelotti says he does not think ARSENAL transfer target Vincius Jnr will leave Real Madrid

The Brazilian forward suffered abuse during Madrid’s 1-0 loss to Valencia at the Mestalla last Sunday, which resulted in the arrest of three people at the match in question.

Vinicius was later sent off for violent conduct in added time following an altercation with striker Hugo Duro, and after the game hit out at La Liga for not tackling the racism that the Spanish League has continued to show.

That has led to some stunning reports in the media that he will be open to the idea of leaving Madrid at the end of the season in order to get away from such abuse – and Arsenal have been linked with a move.

The Gunners were heavily linked with the man last summer and then in the January window – but it was just speculation as Junior has shown no desire to leave the club.

Now – amid that speculation – Ancelotti has addressed the rumours that the Brazilian could leave Madrid: “I do not think he will leave,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“Because he loves football and he loves Real Madrid. His love for the club is great and he wants to have his career here.

“He has not lost hope, no. We will see the suspension he receives, and we will evaluate giving him more or fewer rest days.

‘If he is suspended for two games, then I will give him a week off, to be ready against Athletic Bilbao. And if he is out for just one game then no, he will play against Sevilla.”

The Racism that has been shown in La Liga over the past few seasons is not good – and the League need to tackle it more and do much more.

But how can he stay in that Spanish League when this is happening? It will be interesting to see what he does over the next few months.

He would be a brilliant signing for ARSENAL that is for sure
