The scouts of Real Madrid have had a lot of business to handle in Brazil in recent years. Almost every top talent produced in the country has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu. Vinicius Jr, Eder Militao and Rodrygo stand to show the success of this approach.
One such youngster who signed for Los Blancos in 2020 was Reinier Jesus. The Brazilian was purchased for a hefty fee of €30 million before being sent on loan to Borussia Dortmund for two years.
Now that he is back at the club, another loan exit could be on the cards for the Brazilian attacking midfielder. And according to reports from Diario AS, Torino FC are trying to sign the youngster from Real Madrid.
Real Madrid have prioritised the forward’s loan for a combination of reasons. The ruthless competition in the forward department would hamper Reinier’s development if he stayed at the club. Moreover, he would occupy a non-EU spot that they cannot afford at the moment.
Torino are not the only club in the running for the starlet’s signature. Real Valladolid have had their eyes on him for several weeks now and could be spurred into action by the Italian side’s sudden interest.
Last season, the 20-year-old participated in 13 league games for Dortmund and failed to find the back of the net. In 2020-21, he scored one goal and provided one assist in 14 Bundesliga appearances.
While the numbers may not be impressive, one must remember that he is still young and promises a frightening ceiling.
Real Madrid wish to finalise Reinier’s loan exit at the earliest possible as he is not part of their plans for the pre-season tour to the United States. With Takefusa Kubo on his way to Real Sociedad, Reinier could be the next exciting prospect to leave Los Blancos.
Real Madrid do not want to pay ‘crazy money’ for top defensive target – Romano
As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.
It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.
Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.
Real Madrid will not pay crazy money
Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.
The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.
So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.
Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.
But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.
In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
