Reinier: Real Madrid Signs Brazilian Wonder-kid From Flamengo For €35m
Real Madrid have officially confirmed the purchase of 18-year-old attacking midfielder Reinier from Flamengo in a deal understood to be worth €35 million (£29.8m/$38.8m).
The Brazilian teenager has signed a six-year contract which runs until June 2026.
He was part of the side that won the Brazilian league and the Copa Libertadores last season.
“We wish him great success in this new phase of their life,” Flamengo said in a statement
He follows in the footsteps of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo in moving to the Spanish capital from Brazil at a young age, with the former also joining from Flamengo, while the latter was plucked from Neymar’s old club, Santos.
Reinier has scored six goals in just 14 appearances in Brazil’s top division for Flamengo.
