Reinier joins compatriots Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo as the latest exciting South American talent to move to the Spanish capital in the last 18 months.

The youngster will join up with Real’s reserve team squad once his participation in Brazil’s pre-Olympic tournament finishes in February.

Local media reports suggests Madrid have paid a transfer fee of around 30 million euros ($33.25 million).

The move reaffirms Real’s move away from ‘Galactico’ style signings, with president Florentino Perez keen to ensure the club do not miss out on the next global superstar following his failed pursuit of Neymar, who opted to join great rivals Barcelona in 2013.
