Vinicius Jr has formed a friendship with his ‘bro’ NBA star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, which was shown as the NBA Star arrived to watch the Champions League semi-final clash vs Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabéu.
In January, Vinicius gifted Shaia match-worn shirt with a signed personal message: “For Shai Gilgeous you are the future. I love your style!”
The pair linked-up following the Champions League match by watching the EuroLeague quarter-final game between Real Madrid Baloncesto and Partizan, where the former emerged the winners via a dramatic come-back, in true Real Madrid style.
Shai appeared to be wearing a Real Madrid kit under his leather jacket during the game against Manchester City, which showcases the mutual admiration between the pair.
