Reyes, who was part of the famous 2003/04 ‘Invincibles’ team died last month after losing control of his Mercedes when a tyre punctured while he was travelling at 147mph. He was 35 years-old.

Reyes Jnr’s move to Real Madrid was agreed prior to his father’s death and he announced the move on Instagram, sharing photos with his mother.

“I’m very happy and proud to start a new chapter at Real Madrid,” he wrote. “I want to thank all those people that have supported me and trusted me, especially my family.

“I will continue to enjoy myself, work and learn with humility.”

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez had vowed to look after Reyes Jnr “until his 18th birthday”.
