Real Madrid in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over Reinier loan as Chelsea get Havertz boost
Real Madrid have opened talks with Bayer Leverkusen over loaning them 18-year-old Brazilian wonderkid Reinier, with the Bundesliga club potentially looking for a replacement for Chelsea-linked Kai Havertz.
The Liga club are looking at providing him with more first-team exposure next season, however, and see a loan move to the Bundesliga as being ideal for his development.
Indeed, Leverkusen could well lose star man Havertz in the summer, with Chelsea having been in talks with the Germany international, who is keen to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are yet to have agreed a fee with Peter Bosz's side, however, as Leverkusen hold out for a figurein the region of €100m (£90m/$111m), while Chelsea are hoping to negotiate a lower fee.
Seeing Havertz, who has been one of the stars of the Bundesliga in the 2019-20 campaign, leave the club would represent a significant blow, although Reinier's arrival would be something of a coup.
The teenager is seen as one of the stars of the future and helped Flamengo win the domestic title in Brazilin 2019, while he was also part of their successful Copa Libertadores-winning squad.
He made the big move to Madrid in January 2020 although has not yet been fully integrated into the first-team, instead making three appearances for the Castilla side, scoring two goals and claiming one assist.
Should they complete the loan signing of Reinier, Leverkusen would also be able to offer him European football, with Bosz'sside having qualified for the Europa League after finishing fifth in the table.
Madrid feel that a switch to Germany would provide an excellent tactical and technical experience for Reinier, who at just 18 has had little experience outside of Brazil, where he spent his youth career with the likes of Vasco, Botafogo and Fluminense prior to joining Flamengo in 2014.
