On Monday afternoon Real Madrid revealed what is expected to be their only signing of the winter transfer window in Brazilian youngster Reinier Jesus.

The 18-year-old forward will follow in the footsteps of Vinicius Jr. and make the move to the Spanish capital from Brazilian giants Flamengo in a deal reported to be around 30 million euros.

Reinier will join up with Real Madrid Castilla, the club’s second string in the third tier of Spanish football, for the rest of the season.

The arrival of Reinier marks a trend in Los Blancos scouring South American football for the brightest talent, with Rodrygo arriving from Santos last year and Vinicius from Flamengo the year before.
