Just two years after securing the services of Vinicius Jnr and Rodrygo Goes, Real Madrid looks set to complete the signing of another Brazilian sensation.
Reinier Jesus is believed to have been snapped up from Flamengo for the 13-times UCL winners thanks to their head scout, Juni Galafat.
Los Blancos will be triggering the 30 million euros release clause of the 18 year-old Flamengo midfielder to add to their collection of Brazilian young talents.
Real beat competitions from Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City for Jesus’ signature, despite PSG and City offering him more wages.
The 18 year-old has always had his sights at Madrid as he was pictured in 2018, posing in front of the Bernabeu stadium. With the help of their head scout in Brazil, Los Blancos created close ties with the boy’s family which gave them an edge in securing his services.
Reinier Jesus is lauded for his composure in midfield, passing, eye for goal and long range shots. He will be representing his motherland at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
