Real Madrid are on the verge of fully completing Reinier’s signature which means that the youngster should join Castilla this January.

This fits into Real Madrid’s Brazilian philosophy for the future.

Reinier is picking up praise for his talent from all sides.

The latest to talk about his talent is his Flamengo manager, Jorge Jesus.

He spoke with Marca, where he said:

“He’s a young player with lots of talent, but they don’t look at him like they looked at Joao Felix, with all the pressure that he had.

“I really believe in Reinier, I’ve had various chats with him and we spoke a lot about what he could look over, how he could improve, his defects, what he needed to address.

“We spoke a lot, I taught him about various exemplary players for Reinier to have a reference. Reinier is a very intelligent kid, he likes to learn and I can say that he’s exceptionally gifted,” Jesus continued.

“Physically, he’s exceptionally gifted for his position of the second striker, but they don’t invent, don’t put him on the wing because it’s going to strangle him.

“The system is key to him performing, For example, he finds it difficult to play in a 4-3-3.”

It will be exciting to watch the Brazilian’s progress. Reinier is the leader of 2020 generation and hopefully, for Los Blancos, he can become the future of Carioca.
