Real Madrid completes signing of Brazilian prospect Reinier

Los Blancos have confirmed the signing of 18-yearold starlet Reinier Jesus from Brazilian outfit Flamengo.

His signing was completed following his 18th birthday on Sunday.

The player will join Real Madrid Castilla when he finishes his participation in the U-23 Pre-Olympic Tournament with the selection from Brazil. The Spanish club said Reinier will initially play with its "B" team.

Real Madrid have signed the youngster amid competition from other teams and continue their recent policy of looking to the Brazilian market to capture young talent and reinier joins Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo at the club.

As per reports, Madrid will pay Flamengo 30 million euros for his services, with 80% of the fee going to the Brazilian side, 10% to the player's family with the representative picking up the final 10%.

However, the study describes a unique TCR that can recognize many types of cancer via a single HLA-like molecule called MR1. Being a natural defence against infection for the human body, the immune system is also known to attack cancerous cells.

Casemiro was a similar bargain, costing five million euros in a transfer from Sao Paulo in 2013, although it wasn't until Zinedine Zidane's arrival as coach that he began to shine in midfield.

Vinicius Junior followed the same path from Flamengo in 2018, while his fellow 19-year-old forward, Rodrygo, arrived from Santos prior to the start of this season.

He has already earned silverware in his native land as Flamengo were crowned domestic champions and won the Copa Libertadores previous year, before narrowly losing out to Liverpool in extra-time of the Club World Cup final in Qatar.

The attacking midfielder has been described as "one of the leading emerging stars in the world game" by the Spanish giants and becomes its most expensive ever winter signing.
