Brazilian journalist, Bruno Andrade, of GOAL has stated that Real Madrid are negotiating a potential loan move with Bayer Leverkusen for Reinier Jesus.
The Brazilian would be open to the move as he would have the opportunity to play in the Europa League and would join fellow compatriots Wendell and Paulinho — the latter is a teammate of Reinier’s on the U23 Olympic Brazilian National team. It would not be the first time that Bayer Leverkusen and Real Madrid struck a deal of this ilk. Dani Carvajal spent one season at the club in 2012-2013 prior to re-joining Real Madrid as a first team member. It seems Leverkusen view Reinier as one of many possible replacements for Kai Havertz who is expected join Chelsea in the coming weeks.
There is also interest from La Liga with Ronaldo Nazario’s Real Valladolid pushing hardest. At just 18-years-old, Reinier Jesus is seen as a player for the future at Real Madrid. In the interim, it is important he finds a team where he will be provided amble minutes to grow and develop into the player the club expect him to be in a few years.
