Borussia Dortmund loan signing from Real Madrid Reinier is set to make his name known in the German Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund had signed the Brazilian under 23 on a two-year loan deal. It remains unclear if BVB has an option of making the deal permanent should he impress.

Brazilian youth international Reinier has vowed to make a name for himself in the Bundesliga after joining Borussia Dortmund on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid this summer.

Reinier is yet to make a senior appearance for Real. He linked up with the Galacticos in January from the Brazilian side Flamengo and he has made some progress. He was however halted by injury.

Can Reinier be a success at Dortmund?

The Brazilian is now following the footsteps of another former Madrid loanee in Achraf Hakimi who spent two years with the club before joining Inter. He is, therefore, expecting development as both a player and a person while at Dortmund.

Speaking to the club’s website, he said when the option to join the Black-Yellow came about, he didn’t think twice before accepting it.

“BVB have a reputation for developing players. When this option came up, we knew that it would be the right one.

“I want to grow as a player and learn new things. I’d also like to continue my personal development and learn English and German. It’s important for my life going forward. I want to be successful with the club, win titles if possible, and bring the fans a lot of joy.”

Reinier will become the 11th Brazilian to play for Dortmund in the Bundesliga once he makes his debut. Other Brazilians that have played for the BVB include Marcio Amoroso, Tinga, and Dede, amongst others.

Having been compared to former Brazilian, Kaka, who never played in the Bundesliga, Reinier said his plan is to make for himself.

The 18-year-old, who can play in the wings, midfield, and behind the striker has elegance and passing ability. This made him be compared with the former AC Milan midfielder.

“That [being compared to Kaka] doesn’t bring me any pressure. I want to show my football. Of course, it’s a great thing to be compared with a player like that. But I want to show what kind of football player I am.

“Kaka is a player that I would like to model myself on. But I don’t want to be a second Kaka; I want to be Reinier,” the teenager added.

He further stated that he likes to play quickly, with short passes and one-twos.

“I like to help my teammates, to get them in good shooting positions, or to have a go at goal myself.”
