After Paqueta’s success, which was further proved during the midfielder’s game with Brazil this weekend, Leonardo is once again looking for talents in his homeland.
In fact, Reinier has been added to the Rossoneri’s wish list. SempreMilan’s Vito Angele provides us with the latest updates on the situation below.
Reinier Jesus Carvalho, who plays for Flamengo’s U-19 team (Paqueta’s former team), is destined to become a star in the future for the Brazilian team, having already made sparks in the youth ranks. The youngster, born in 2000, has a release clause set at €70m.
Leonardo and the social media hint
On Reinier, there are already the eyes of many European clubs, including Real Madrid. The competition is frightening, but after managing to take Paqueta off the Bernabeu side, Milan could try again.
The last clue, and no less important, arrives from Leonardo. The Rossoneri’s sporting director has started to follow the talent on Instagram, just as he did in the past with Paqueta and Carrasco, not hiding his objectives.
The good relations with Flamengo could accelerate the deal even if the Brazilian side would like to keep the player for a few years, in order to let him grow and thus increase his value.
