Reinier becomes Real Madrid's most expensive January signing

Real Madrid's 30m-euro move for Reinier Jesus has made the Brazilian the LaLiga club's most expensive ever January signing.
Reinier overtakes 2009 signing Huntelaar
Previously, Madrid's biggest mid-season outlay was on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who arrived from Ajax in a 27m-euro deal in 2008/09, followed by the 20.5m-euro purchase of Fernando Gago from Boca Juniors two seasons before. The podium was completed by Lass Diarra, who joined for 20m from Portsmouth in January 2009.
