According to AS, as cited by Esporte Interativo, Borussia Dortmund want to sign Reinier Jesus on loan. The Real Madrid playmaker is tipped to ply trade elsewhere on loan next season, which has put the Bundesliga giants on red alert. However, they could face stiff competition from Bayer Leverkusen and Real Valladolid.
Reinier: Player profile
Labelled as the “new Kaka” in his native Brazil, Reinier joined Real Madrid back in January, in a €30 million move from Flamengo. Due to ineligibility, he had to spend the rest of the season playing for RM Castilla.
As the term “Kaka” would suggest, Reinier is a playmaker – a dynamic one who loves to get forward and craft chances for his team. He is blessed with quick feet that allowed him to effortlessly dribble through tight spaces and carry the ball around the half-space. Also, the youngster is known for his pace and technical prowess.
However, what makes Reinier more than just a regular playmaker is his hunger to find the back of the net. Indeed, the 18-year-old is blessed with a vicious right foot that saw him score six goals in 14 matches for Flamengo in 2019. He has also been prolific with the Brazilian youth teams, notably netting five goals in 10 games with the U18s.
How Does Reinier Fit In At Dortmund?
The acquisitions of Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard last summer have, no doubt, stacked Borussia Dortmund’s creative department. And it wasn’t helped by the emergence of Giovanni Reyna, who is tipped to enjoy a more prominent role in the first-team next season. Also, the Coronavirus pandemic has made things easier for the club to keep hold of Jadon Sancho.
Hence, Dortmund’s interest in Reinier seem rather bizarre, especially if we consider the fact that club captain Marco Reus will be returning to full fitness by the start of next season. Hence, the Bundesliga giants do not require a new attacking midfielder.
However, even if BVB do continue their chase for Reinier, the Real Madrid youngster will likely be considered as a replacement for Mario Gotze. The experienced German international has left the club after seeing out his contract, leaving a slight void in the creative unit.
But much like Gotze, Reinier could find it difficult to regular game-time under Lucien Favre due to so much competition. That’s where Bayer Leverkusen could be a better fit as there; he could potentially emerge as a long-term replacement for Kai Havertz.
Nevertheless, as the transfer business truly kicks off, it will be interesting to see what the future has in store for Reinier this summer.
