Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Eder Militao are three youngsters who defined Real Madrid’s historic 2021/22 season in their own way. However, hiding in the shadows of their glory is another Brazilian who has struggled to find luck at the Santiago Bernabeu – Renier Jesus.

Reinier seemed to have adapted to life at the Castilla but struggled to earn opportunities to break through. Moreover, the COVID break exactly at that time did not help his case.

According to reports from Sergio Gomez, Roma have enquired about the possibility of signing the attacking midfielder. There has been no contact between the parties, but the interest has been recorded.

The Brazilian returns to Real Madrid after completing his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund later this month. With Carlo Ancelotti not counting on the player for the immediate season, Los Blancos wish to send him on another loan.

Reinier did not enjoy a great spell in Germany, starting just one game and making 13 appearances in the entire league season.

Benfica were said to be in the driver’s seat to sign the 20-year-old on loan this summer. In fact, the player’s father confirmed it directly when he spoke to the media last week.

“My son is is very excited and enthusiastic, when a club the size of Benfica wants you, it is impossible to not be happy.”

It remains to be seen if Roma’s interest beings about a twist in the tale. Nevertheless, it would require talks to start between the parties for such a situation to arise.
