Real Madrid are all set to make their first signing of the winter transfer window in Flamengo star Reinier Jesus.

Los Blancos are set to unveil their latest Brazilian acquisition when the midfielder turns 18 on January 19.

Madrid will fork out the 30 million release clause attached to the 17-year-old’s contract, a fee which was reduced from 70m euros on signing his new contract with the Brazilian club.

Reinier will follow Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo as a young Brazilian star to the Spanish capital in the last two-and-a-half years, the former also plying his trade at Flamengo before making the move to Europe.

Reinier is expected to form part of Raùl’s Castilla side, who play in the third tier of Spanish football, and he could be sent out on loan next season.
