Signed from Flamengo in January 2020, Reinier Jesus is yet to make his first-team debut for Real Madrid.

The Brazilian attacking midfielder was widely regarded as one of the best young talents in South America when Los Blancos swooped him away. But with the Non-EU spots in the squad taken, they had to loan him out to Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2020, for two seasons.

However, the two years in Germany were disastrous for the 20-year-old as he played just 39 matches for the Black and Yellows. Looking back at his time with Dortmund, Reinier Jesus told AS that he feels like he lost two years of his career.

“I just wanted to get out of there. I did my part, I trained, I went home and I was there every day. I always arrived on time. I respected all the people who worked at the club. I have a clear conscience,” the Brazilian said in the interview.

Having returned to Real Madrid this past summer, Reinier was shipped out to Girona on loan, where he has finally made his La Liga debut. “It’s a good start, I’m gaining confidence, gaining minutes. I am very happy with this choice for me and my family,” he said about his new club.

As for his future at Real Madrid, Reinier said: “I want to follow my path, whether it’s here or if it’s with another team, the important thing is to be happy, to be well, to be giving your best.”

On the topic of racism, Reinier said that he had not experienced anything during his time in Germany or Spain. However, he expressed solidarity with Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr, who was subjected to racist chants earlier this month by Atletico Madrid supporters.

“It is unfortunate that this happens in today’s world. I sent a message to Vini telling him that he could always count on me. But Vini is very strong,” he said.

Talking about his compatriot’s dancing celebrations, Reinier added: “Brazilians answer everything on the field. If you scored a goal, you have to celebrate it however you want.”

According to a report from El Chiringuito TV, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe wants to be presented as the new Real Madrid player before the beginning of UEFA Euro 2024.

It is to be noted that Euro commences on June 14, a mere 13 days after this season’s UEFA Champions League final.

Now, PSG will have their commitment in Ligue 1 until May 18, and depending on their performance in the Champions League, they will officially end their 2023/24 campaign.

At best, if it ends in May itself, Mbappe can see his dream turning into reality but if the French team somehow reaches the UCL final, the French superstar will have to report for international duty soon after

Mbappe is extremely close to becoming the Real Madrid player after it emerged that the forward and the team are closing in on an agreement over image rights

As such, there would not be any fee involved in the transfer since Mbappe will move as a free agent, but as reported before, the team from the Spanish capital will pay him an extravagant signing-on bonus expected to be around €120-150 million.

As of today, both Real Madrid and Mbappe are working on the final details of the contract. While it is assumed that he would earn a fixed salary of €14 million each season in addition to €30 million in bonuses, there remains a disparity regarding his image rights.

At PSG, Mbappe holds 100% of his image rights but Madrid have a policy that has only been mended once when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo joined from Manchester United in 2009.

Ever since the Galacticos era, Madrid have reserved 50% of the player’s image rights, but in the case of Mbappe, the team from the Spanish capital is okay with having just 20% of it as even that would churn in big money.

Once these details are sorted, Real Madrid can make the official announcement of the deal in collaboration with PSG. Once this is done, everyone will wait for PSG to end their campaign and depending on that, Mbappe will arrange his travel to Madrid.
