According to Goal Brazil, Real Madrid have verbally agreed to loan out wonderkid Reinier Jesus to Borussia Dortmund, with the deal set for an initial year with the option to extend by a further season.

Goal add that the loan contract is actually already signed, it seems as though an official announcement from both clubs is now a formality.

Goal report that Bayer Leverkusen were the favourites to take on the 18-year-old, with Reinier even being urged to move there by Brazil Under-23s teammate Paulinho.

However, Leverkusen’s focus on the future of superstar Kai Havertz has seen Dortmund swoop in and secure the addition of Reinier.

It’s suggested that Los Blancos see German football as ideal at this stage of Reinier’s career, the ace arrived in January from boyhood club Flamengo for €30m and first-team chances are rare at Madrid.
