Flamengo teen Reinier Jesus is reportedly a target for Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants prepared to hand over £60.5m to buy out his contract.

Real Madrid have reportedly set their sights on Brazilian youngster Reinier Jesus as they gear up for a massive summer overhaul.

Los Blancos have already begun preparations for 2019-20 by agreeing a deal for Porto defender Eder Militao.

A number of other star names have also been linked, including the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Sadio Mane, but The Sun claims that a relative-unknown player is also on Zinedine Zidane's radar.

Jesus, who is contracted to Rio-based club Flamengo until 2021, is said to have been watched up close by Real in recent months.

The report indicates that Los Blancos are prepared to buy out the 17-year-old's contract by handing over £60.5m to Flamengo, surpassing the £39.6m they paid the same side for forward Vinicius Junior last year.

Due to FIFA rules, however, Jesus will not be allowed to complete the move until turning 18 in 2021, but Real are supposedly keen to see off competition from other sides - including Liverpool - for the youngster's signature.
