Borussia Dortmund have signed 18-year-old Reinier Jesus from Real Madrid on loan for the next two seasons.
“I’m happy that I’m now at BVB. The club is known for its focus on young players and improving them. I would like to learn a lot and play a lot here, help the team and be successful. I hope that we’ll experience many happy moments together,” Jesus told the club’s official website.
“Reinier is a player who possesses enormous talent and can be deployed in various attacking positions,” said sporting director Michael Zorc. “We’ve been keeping tabs on the lad for over two years; in addition to his outstanding technical qualities, he also boasts a strong physical presence. Following the long break from competitive football, we’ll give him the necessary time to adapt to professional football in Germany and he can then be an additional option for us going forward.”
