Desc It is easy to understand just why Flamengo boss Jorge Jesus was so infuriated by his club’s decision to sell Reinier to Real Madrid for just €35m (£29m/$39m) in January. The elegant attacking midfielder with an impressive work ethic only made his professional bow for Flamengo in July, coming on in the second leg of a Copa Libertadores clash no less, and went on to rack up six goals and two assists in 14 appearances in Serie A. Former team-mate Filipe Luis has acknowledged only time will tell if the early comparisons with Kaka are warranted but, encouragingly. The Brazil Under-23 international has only just turned 18 and will initially line out for Madrid’s B team, but it looks like only a matter of time before he is playing alongside compatriots Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo in Zinedine Zidane’s senior side

[Curiously enough it is another Madrid legend whom Reinier credits as his footballing icon] I’m heavily inspired by [Zinedine] Zidane. I’ve watched a lot of videos on the internet of him playing. I’m always trying to execute plays like he did

[How Real Madrid’s Neymar failure led to Reinier deal] Real Madrid are the greatest. When I was very little I used to watch the Madrid Galactico games with my father. I loved Madrid. And of course since then I have always loved them. Zidane and Kaka have always been my idols because of their style of playing in midfield, with elegance and daring. But I have seen so many good players in Madrid… Benzema and Hazard are pure artists! My word, they play so well
