‘Reinier even better than Kaka in some ways’ – Filipe Luis says Real Madrid are getting ‘great signing’

Real Madrid would be getting a “great signing” if a deal is tied up for Reinier, says Filipe Luis, with the Flamengo starlet considered to be even better in some areas than legendary countryman Kaka.

A €35 million (£29m/$39m) switch to Santiago Bernabeu is said to be on the cards for an exciting 17-year-old.
