He came after the good experiences in the Brazilian market with Vinicius and Rodrygo, but Reinier has not been able to follow in the wake of its compatriots. Three years after his arrival, the man from Brasilia, currently on loan at Girona, has not been able to demonstrate his talent in any of their destinations. In Montilivi, as he has done before in his two seasons in Dortmund, his role is miniscule. Reinier, 21, has barely played 343 minutes in the white-and-red shirt.
The start of the season looked good for the youth squad Mengao. The first minutes that Míchel gave him were promising for Reinier. His performances raised him to ownership and he scored a goal against Valladolid. Injuries have crossed his path and the force with which the course started has been diluted. After the World Cup he has only played 32 minutes. A little over half an hour she divided into three games and focused on the last month, since she seems to have left her physical problems behind.
The 30 million euros that Madrid spent on his signing are, for the moment, an investment of dubious qualification. Before landing in Girona, Madrid sent him two years of ‘Erasmus’ to Dortmund, where they had turned Achraf into a gold squad. A Bundesliga in which Carvajal, Mayoral or Vallejo also forged, on loan or transferred with a repurchase option.
Reinier did not earn the trust of any of the three coaches he had in Dortmund and his time in Germany ended without pain or glory, with a poor record of a goal in 741 minutes…
He had a fleeting passage through Castilla
When Reinier arrived in January 2020, the club made him a Castilla file, as happened the previous season with Vinicius and that same campaign with Rodrygo. But in his case, he had no chance of playing with the first team in the League because the quota for non-EU players was covered.
The pandemic made his stage in the subsidiary very brief. He barely played three games under Raúl’s orders before the coronavirus stopped the competition. But there he did have time to shine: he scored a brace against Coruxo and provided an assist.
