Real Madrid looking for the new Vinicius as they follow Reinier
The race is on to sign Reinier, who is currently at Flamengo, with AC Milan also interested along with Manchester City and Roma too.
According to Italian media, Real Madrid are chasing another Brazilian youngster. After signing Vinicius and Rodrygo, they are keeping very close tabs on 17-year-old attacking midfielder, Reinier Jesús Carvalho. The interest in the teenager is not new and the club are aware of his €70 million release clause.
💣 #Milan, interesse concreto per #Reinier Jesus Carvalho, talento del Flamengo, classe 2002. Tanti i top club interessati, tra cui il #RealMadrid (piccola curiosità: il suo idolo è proprio Zidane), ma offerta Blancos per ora NON confermata. E i rossoneri provano ad accelerare. pic.twitter.com/RWiUzNWOEa— Matteo Pedrosi (@MatteoPedrosi) 27 de marzo de 2019
The youngser, who developed at Flamengo's academy, and is currently playing with the under-20s, has not debuted with the first team yet. He is, however, the captain of the Brazil under-17 side and with them he has played seven times scoring four goals with one assist. The likes of Manchester City, Juventus and Roma are all tracking his progress too.

Race is on for Reinier's signing
Reinier has a contract with Flamengo until 2021 and one of his idols is Zinedine Zidane, which surely won't hurt. In fact, the footballer took a photo recently outside of the Santiago Bernabéu with the caption: "one of the best temples in world football."
In Italy they say Milan are also closely watching the player too and have a good relationship with Flamengo. Both Real Madrid and the Serie A side share good relations with the Brazilian side, however, and the race is on to sign the youngster. Madrid convinced them to part ways with Vincius but Milan did the same with Lucas Paqueta just three months earlier.
