Bayer Leverkusen in talks with Real Madrid for Reinier loan

Bayer Leverkusen may have found a replacement for Kai Havertz after opening talks for Real Madrid super-talent Reinier.

According to Goal, the Bundesliga side want to take the Brazilian on loan next season.

Reinier, 18, is regarded as a star of the future and Madrid paid €35m to sign him from Flamengo in January.

In his three appearances for Madrid’s second team, Reinier scored two goals and assisted one.

And a move to Bayer could provide him with vital experience in a league noted for its player development.

Real Valladolid, owned by Brazil legend Ronaldo, have also expressed interest in Reinier.

But Leverkusen are poised to win the race with a deal thought to be close.

It could provide the German club with a low-cost replacement for Kai Havertz if he moves to Chelsea.

Chelsea are in talks with Leverkusen for Havertz and he already has a personal agreement with the English club.

However, the clubs still have to agree a fee with Bayer holding out for €100m.
