Borussia Dortmund to Acquire Reinier Jesus on Loan

Borussia Dortmund are adding one more player to their list of offseason acquisitions. Reinier Jesus, and 18-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder who plays for Real Madrid, is expected to officially sign for Borussia Dortmund on a one-year loan deal with an option to extend the deal a second year. Reinier is considered a prized prospect for Real Madrid, who bought the youngster from Flamengo for around €30 million.

PSG Advance to the Champions League Final

Ol’ Tommy Tuchel is on the verge of his first major European trophy. His Paris Saint-German squad rolled past RB Leipzig in convincing fashion yesterday, with contributions from Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, and Juan Bernat. This leaves them slated to play whoever wins between Bayern Munich and Olympique Lyon, a match that will take place at 3 pm EST today.
