Real Madrid wonderkid Reinier is set to complete a season-long loan move to Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund will have the option to extend the loan by an extra year, but no purchase clause has been included in the final deal.

BVB boss Lucien Favre confirmed that Reinier's arrival was imminent after watching his side beatAustriaWien in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.

“We want to loanhim.It’s in the pipeline.From what I’ve seen, he’s very good offensively and a very, very good finisher," said Favre.

Madrid forked out€35 million (£30m/$39m) to bring themidfielder to Santiago Bernabeu from Flamengo in January.

He committed his future to the Spanish champions through to 2026, but La Liga's registration rules prevented him from joining up with Zinedine Zidane's first team.

Reinier has had to make do with a role in Madrid's Castilla set-updue to the fact only three non-EU players are allowed in the senior squad, with Vinicius, Rodrygo and Eder Militao currently filling those spots.

Madrid are hoping that thetalented teenager can get plenty of minutes under his belt at Dortmund, who have carved out a sterling reputation for their development of younger players in recent years.

The likes of Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland,Giovanni Reyna and Jude Bellinghamhave allbeen given a platform to further their careersby the Bundesliga giants, and ex-Madrid loaneeAchraf Hakimi was one of their top performers last term.

Bellingham became Dortmund's second signing of the summer when he joined the club from Birmingham City in July, with former Paris Saint-Germain full-back Thomas Meunier arriving on a free transfer earlier in the month.

Confirmation of Reinier's loan switch could reignite speculation over Sancho's future with Dortmund, as Manchester United continue to try and lure the England international to Old Trafford.
