Reinier Weeps After £25m Transfer To Real Madrid

Reinier Jesus broke down in tears after completing his £25million transfer to Real Madrid.

The attacking midfielder was touted around Europe's top clubs after helping Flamengo win the Copa Libertadores and the Brazilian top flight last season.

According to The SUN, he has signed a six-and-a-half-year deal with the Spanish giants that will end on June 30 2026, and described the transfer as a “dream.”

Reinier said: “I want to be a part of the history of this great club.

“Today is a very happy day for me as I get to fulfil a childhood dream.”

The 18-year-old had been on international duty with the Brazilian Under-23s, helping them in Tokyo 2020 pre-Olympic qualifying, before being unveiled as a Real Madrid player.

Reinier is the third Brazilian teenager to join Real in the past two years following Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
