Brazilian attacker Reinier is highly-rated by Real Madrid but he has to leave the club this season due to not having an EU passport.

Due to La Liga rules, only three players without EU passports can be registered by every La Liga side. Real Madrid already have Vinicius Junior, Eder Militao and Rodrygo as the three players without an EU passport.

Real Madrid want the attacker to leave the club on loan this season but are reluctant to add a purchase option to any loan deal. This is why Benfica backed out of a move for Reinier, according to AS.

La Liga side Real Valladolid are interested in signing the Brazilian on loan but must first sell players before making a move. Italian side Torino are also interested in signing Reinier but the Brazilian isn’t interested in joining the Italian side.

Reinier’s situation is indeed becoming very complicated.
