Reinier impressed for Flamengo in 2019 and his performances have caught the attention of clubs across Europe.

Four days ago, we relayed news from Brazil that Everton are interested in the 17-year-old and the Toffees have submitted a €30m offer to acquire the midfielder’s services.

It was also explained that Real Madrid are in the race for the teenager, along with the Merseyside club.

AS now claims the South American has agreed to join the La Liga side and is expected to complete his move after he turns 18 on January 19th.

Reinier and his entourage initially had a plan to join a club behind the absolute elite.

The list included Everton, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax and these are the clubs he had held talks with for a transfer. However, Real Madrid’s arrival to the scene has changed the dynamics.

The newspaper claims the appeal of training under Raúl at Real Madrid’s academy and the prospect of playing under Zinedine Zidane has been decisive for Reinier to join Los Blancos over other clubs.
