Real Madrid ask for Benfica striker Henrique Araujo during Reinier talks

Benfica striker Henrique Araujo has been raised by Real Madrid during talks over Reinier Jesus.

Marca says Reinier is very close to becoming a Benfica player. The Portuguese side want to sign the Brazilian midfielder on loan and the three parties are expected to reach an agreement.

The potential deal between Los Blancos and Benfica will not include a buyout option for the Primeira Liga club and the name of Benfica striker Henrique Araujo was also put on the table.

Reinier joined Borussia Dortmund on loan, but he wasn't not given as many opportunities as him and Real Madrid may have expected.

Benfica and Real Madrid maintain an excellent relationship. And Los Blancos have set sights on Benfica academy product Henrique Araujo, who has already made his debut with the first team.
