Reinier Jesus was moved to tears at his unveiling for Real Madrid in February 2020. Born in Brazil’s capital, the 18-year-old said he was fulfilling a life’s ambition when moving to the Bernabeu.

Reinier Jesus had only made his professional debut for Flamengo a few months earlier, so to get a move to the Spanish giants so early in his career was clearly a huge moment.
