Real Madrid’s strategy of keeping a close eye on the Brazilian market has worked out well for the most part. Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr and most recently Rodrygo Goes have all established themselves as regular starters for the Merengues and seem set to don a white shirt for the years to come.

Yet, not all the players signed from the South American country have gone on to succeed with flying colours. Reinier is one such young star.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, the player is set to return to the club in the summer after an unsuccessful spell at Girona. An exit from the Spanish capital seems inevitable in June, and the player has several options to choose from.

There is serious interest from the Brazilian league to bring back the player, and two clubs are said to be best placed.

Flamengo, who received €30 million in 202 for his move to Madrid, are looking to sign him on loan in the summer. The other South American club contemplating his arrival is Corinthians and will push for him in the summer.

Lazio and Atalanta in the Serie A also stand as tempting options, especially with the chance for him to stay in Europe’s top five leagues.

The 21-year-old has not had chances to prove himself at Real Madrid. However, he has no one to blame but himself going by his underwhelming numbers on loan.

His spell at Borussia Dortmund was a colossal failure as he started just one game for the team in the Bundesliga all season. His numbers at Girona are not much better.

In ten appearances for the Catalan side this term, the Brazilian has scored just one goal while missing two big chances. He averages one chance created every three games.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
