Clarence Seedorf has warned Real Madrid new boys Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes that they will not play at the Santiago Bernabeu. Madrid has splashed out a reported €90million on the Brazilian teenagers as it looks to secure two stars of the future.

But, Seedorf, who won LaLiga and the Champions League with Los Blancos, has observed the situation in the Spanish capital from both inside and outside the camp.

And, he does not believe the big fees and big talents involved in the deals will protect either Vinicius or Rodrygo from the ruthless nature of the European champion.

Seedorf had a stint as Deportivo La Coruna coach, earlier, in 2018 and highlighted the loan man Fede Valverde's similar struggles.

"Madrid are a club with very high demands. These two players are not going to play. This year I had a Uruguayan [Valverde] at Deportivo. He is not going to play for Madrid. He will not play," Seedorf told SporTV in Brazil.

"If you are lucky, you will go to a team like Porto to mature. And, if you do not do well, others will take your place. Everyone dreams of playing for Madrid and then those who arrive either live or die."

"Ze Roberto was one of the best players I saw and he left. [Samuel] Eto'o went away at 18 years old, had a wonderful year at Real Mallorca and went to Barcelona."
