Reinier Jesus is very close to becoming a Benfica player. The Portuguese side want to sign the Brazilian midfielder on loan and the three parties are expected to reach an agreement.
As MARCA has learned, the potential deal between Los Blancos and Benfica will not include a buyout option for the Primeira Liga club and the name of Benfica striker Henrique Araujo was also put on the table.
The 20-year-old midfielder has had no luck at Real Madrid. When it seemed as though he had already adapted to his new environment at Real Madrid Castilla, the COVID-19 outbreak halted his progression.
Reinier joined Borussia Dortmund on loan, but he wasn’t not given as many opportunities as him and Real Madrid may have expected.
In Germany they believe that the main reason behind his lack of playing time is that he struggled to adapt to his new team. In fact, Reinier started just two of the 27 Bundesliga games in which he featured over the last two years.
