Real Valladolid were one of the first teams to secure promotion to the top flight this past season, thanks to a brilliant campaign that saw them finish second in La Liga 2.

As Valladolid prepare for the rigours of the top flight, the team has already started looking out for reinforcements in the market.

Real Valladolid eyeing Reinier Jesus

According to Mundo Deportivo, one of the players Real Valladolid are targeting ahead of the new season is Reinier Jesus.

Formerly of the prestigious Flamengo youth academy, Reinier is coming on the back of a season-long loan spell at Frosinone, where he scored two goals in 22 matches.

Having failed to prove himself at Real Madrid, Reinier doesn’t appear to have any future at the Santiago Bernabeu even though his contract does not expire until 2026.

Real Valladolid would ideally be looking for a loan move for the Brazilian starlet, as part of their plans to enhance the ranks in the creative department.

Ronaldo Nazario to play a key role

The report adds that Real Valladolid president Ronaldo Nazario will play a key role in facilitating the transfer of Reinier Jesus.

The iconic former Brazilian forward, who has legendary status at Real Madrid, has an excellent relationship with Florentino Perez.

Ronaldo is expected to utilise that synergy to fast-track the negotiations between the two sides, the outcome of which could see Reinier moving to Valladolid next season.

For their part, Real Madrid do not have any problem in sending Reinier on yet another loan deal. However, it is about time the club explore ways to permanently offload the former Borussia Dortmund star.

To that end, Real Madrid will be hoping to add a permanent buy clause in Reinier’s deal to Valladolid.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
