A brake for Reinier
A brake for Reinier
From a hundred… to zero. The ‘Operation Reinier’ has gone from stroking its resolution, to returning to the starting point. Benfica has withdrawn from the bid for a fringe: the purchase option. The Eagles accepted a simple loan for one season, but they wanted the possibility of signing him as property at the end of the year to be on the table. That has collided head-on with Madrid’s position, antonym: in Chamartín faith is still maintained that the player can exploit and be valid in the medium term , it is considered that he has simply had bad luck with his loan to Dortmund, but the talent They have it and they don’t want to part with it. That is why they refused to put on the table the letter that Benfica could easily ‘steal’ him, establishing a purchase clause that for the Portuguese club, in his words, “was not accessible” . And that detail, just that, has blown up the entire operation. There was also another fringe to be closed, that of salary distribution, but in this matter there was optimism that -with a little more time for negotiations- an agreement would be reached. Quite the opposite of the purchase option rope, finally broken by so much tug-of-war. That is why Reinier , despite the fact that everything was practically closed and had already given his “yes” , finally will not go to Da Luz. And this is a blow to the footballer, who was “excited”, in the words of his father. His illusion to play, to enjoy football again, is total; Well, in two years on loan to Dortmund he has only added 741 minutes, scoring a goal and giving an assist.
This season he cannot stay in Madrid, since he would occupy a non-community position and there are no available ones, so a new assignment will be sought for him. Teams like Valladolid or Fenerbahce sustain his interest; others like Celta seem to have lost it. Both Madrid and the player, after having everything on track towards Da Luz, now have to roll up their sleeves and start negotiating again, looking for suitors.Reinier looks for destiny, after suffering a hard braking.
