Raul has claimed that he has no information regarding Real Madrid’s pursuit of Reinier.
It has been confirmed that Real Madrid have agreed on terms with Flamengo to complete the signing of Reinier for €30 million. The 17-year old will officially move when he turns 18 later this month.
Despite the imminent move, Real Madrid Castilla coach Raul has insisted that he has not been made aware of the signing.
“Nobody has told me anything about this case,” Raul told as Marca reports.
“I can’t tell you anything because I don’t know anything. You will have to ask the club or other people.”
Real Madrid Castilla has performed below par this season but Raul assured that he is working towards the players’ improvements. After their recent defeat to Melilla, the former Los Blancos said that their problem lies beyond the goal drought.
“There is more missing than just goals,” he added.
“I can’t ask for more from them in terms of effort and attitude. We have to keep playing good football and trying to prepare these boys in their process as footballers.”
