Real Madrid Youngster, Reinier Set For Loan Move



Reinier is expected to head out of Real Madrid on loan again this summer, with that Portuguese giants Benfica currently head the queue of suitors.

The promising forward endured a tough time across two seasons with Bundesliga heavyweights, and he could now head to Portugal

A decision on the 20-year-old’s next move is imminent at Santiago Bernabeu, with several offers already on the table.

The Brazilian playmaker has spent the last two seasons in Germany with Borussia Dortmund, but and now he is looking for a new challenge.

Benfica are understood to be the favoured option of Reinier and his representatives, but no agreement has been reached with Real as yet.

According to multiple reports, while the deal is close, negotiations remain ongoing.

That is because while Benfica are eager to bring Reinier – who twice finished inside the top 10 of the annual NXGN list – onto their books, they are unwilling to pay the full loan fee of €3 million currently being demanded by Madrid.

Benfica are hoping that the promise of regular game time for Reinier in Portugal will work in their favour.

The South American starlet joined Real from Flamengo for €35 million (£30m/$39m) in January 2020, but spent several months in Spain without playing any competitive football.

A two-year loan at Dortmund was supposed to aid his development, but opportunities there proved to be in short supply.

With that lack of action taken into account, Real are eager to avoid making another mistake on the transfer front.

They are, however, also wary of agreeing to supplement any agreement that would allow the club taking Reinier on loan to drop him if the switch does not play out as planned.
