In a few hours, Real Madrid will fly off to the United States of America for their pre-season tour, where they will be playing four friendly matches to prepare for the new campaign.
And, it will not be long before manager Carlo Ancelotti announces the list of players that he will be taking along on the trip.
And, according to journalist Miguel Angel Toribio on Radio MARCA, one player who is certain not to be on the manager’s squad list for the US tour is youngster Reinier Jesus as the club and the player are working to secure a loan exit for him.
Reinier has been with Real Madrid since January 2020, when the club signed him up from Flamengo in a deal worth around €30 million. However, things have never clicked for the Brazilian attacking midfielder in Spain.
After spending six months with Castilla, the 21-year-old joined Borussia Dortmund on a two-year loan deal, which did not go according to plans. Having returned to Madrid last year, Reinier signed for Girona, where he again endured a middling spell.
Despite that, it was suggested that the Brazilian could be returning to the Catalan club on another loan stint, until they decided to pull the plug on the operation.
It has left Reinier in a bit of a limbo as he looks to sort out his immediate future. The 21-year-old Brazilian has no place in Ancelotti’s plans given the competition for places in midfield. And another loan exit is pretty much guaranteed, which is why he will not be a part of the US tour.
Along with Reinier, Dani Ceballos is another player who is unlikely to make the trip as he recovers from the thigh injury he suffered earlier this month.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
