Real Madrid chasing Flamengo rising star

Real Madrid have the radar turned on in Brazil, where the club is expected to buy 17-year-old Brazilian Reinier in Flamengo in this transfer window. 

According to Spanish media Marca the deal will go through when the young man turns 18 on the 19th of January, and the transfer fee is going to be around €30 million.

The price has previously been significantly higher. However, according to Marca the buy-clause has dropped from €70 million to €30 million after signing of a new contract.

Reinier plays on the offensive midfield. He has played 14 first-team matches for Flamengo, and has scored six goals.

He was part of the Flamengo squad that went to the World Cup for clubs, but did not get any time on the pitch.
