Sporting Lisbon 25-year-old attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has reportedly contacted Real Madrid about sealing a transfer to the Bernabeu.
AcDon Balon claimed that the £47million-rated Portugal international is eager for Sporting to sell him and he believes he could get a transfer to Real this winter as he’s willing to try and push through a move.
It remains to be seen if Fernandes will get the transfer he wants, but it appears only a matter of time before a big club comes in for him after his dazzling form in his native Portugal.
A report from A Bola recently linked Real Madrid, Tottenham and Manchester United with interest in Fernandes, and attacking midfielder does appear like he’d be a particularly excellent joining for the Red Devils.
Man United need more quality in midfield after a slow start to the campaign, with Paul Pogba’s injury leaving them a little starved of creativity in that department.
Some would argue Pogba hasn’t really been good enough when he’s been fit anyway, with Fernandes a potential upgrade in that area of the pitch if he did sign.
Don Balon, though, suggest Real Madrid now seem to be leading the chase for the player’s signature, so Man Utd may need to get a move on and step up their previously reported interest.
