Real Madrid coach Zidane won't rule out Reinier starting with senior squad

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has welcomed new €30m signing Reinier Jesus.

The 18 year-old attacker has arrived this week from Flamengo and Zidane admits Reinier is likely to begin his Real career with Raul's Castilla squad.

Zidane said, "We know that Reinier is a player of the future for Real Madrid, but he is not yet with us.

"We have to go step by step. When he arrives, we will see what we do with him. In principle, he will go first with Castilla. Like all Brazilians, he is technically very good.

"With the videos, you have an idea, but I will wait."
