Father of Real Madrid midfielder Reinier confirms Benfica talks

Benfica are in talks with Real Madrid for Reinier Jesus.

Reinier has just completed a loan with Borussia Dortmund, though won't be part of Real Madrid's squad next season.

The big problem for the Brazilian is his lack of an EU passport, which will force him and Real to seek another loan arrangement.

And Benfica have come forward, with the player's father telling Record: "My son is enthusiastic.

"When a club of the size of Benfica wants you, it's impossible not to be happy."
