Real Madrid, the big shots on the field, might not be grabbing any more players for their squad before the summer window shuts. Fans are worried, especially with the bunch of injured players. But hold on, the club seems pretty chill with the players they’ve got. That doesn’t mean a few might not be waving goodbye soon, though.
Real Madrid’s got a bunch of players right now who seem to be totally off Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s radar. For them, hitting the exit might just be the smart move, instead of being stuck on the bench or kicking it in the reserves.
One guy who’s totally in that category is Reinier Jesus. This Brazilian young gun was snagged from Flamengo for a cool €30 million when he was just a teen.
While Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo are shooting up as stars, Reinier’s career’s been kind of stuck in the mud. He didn’t shine much during his time with Borussia Dortmund and Girona. And now, wait for it—could he be eyeing a Greek adventure?
Yep, you heard it right. The word is out from UOL that PAOK, the Greek club, wants to nab Reinier. It looks like another loan spell might be on the cards. PAOK’s made some chit-chats, but no official offer’s been tossed on the table yet.
Let’s put on our prediction hats and peek into Reinier’s crystal ball. Sticking around at Real Madrid? I’m not going to do much for him, honestly. At 21, he needs to be clocking in some regular game time, and that’s not really happening at Santiago Bernabeu.
A joint like PAOK might just be the perfect spot for him to stretch his legs on the senior stage. He’s still got a contract with Real Madrid until 2026’s summer. So, there’s a glimmer of hope that his career could get a reboot in the Spanish capital.
