Real Madrid held negotiations with €80m-rated Man United attacker

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reportedly asked the club for a possible transfer deal for Man United attacker Bruno Fernandes. The 26-year-old midfielder has been a big hit at Man United since his move from Sporting Lisbon earlier in the year, but his future may surprisingly be in doubt already.

Los Blancos are interested in Bruno to give them some creative spark in midfield, and he could make perfect sense as a long-term replacement for the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. It stays to be seen if Red Devils would sell Fernandes so soon after signing him, but he’s become unsettled by the team’s poor start to the campaign.

The report adds that Portugal international would likely cost nearly £72m, so that could see the Red Devils make the pretty healthy profit on him, as he cost around £47m at the time they signed him.

The Red Devils fans will no doubt be disappointed if they fail to keep such a talented footballer, however, with the Portuguese midfielder looking a great leader as well as a top player on the pitch since he made the move to England.

It is claimed he was very vocal in a dressing room row during the break at Man United, before then being told by the Norwegian manager that he was being replaced by Fred.

The footballer and club have since played down suggestions of a bust-up between Bruno and captain Harry Maguire as they trailed Tottenham 4-1 at half-time. Fernandes also dismissed a story during the international break with Portugal that he lacked faith in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tactics.
