After a contrasting preseason game which saw the team managed to claim victory against Fernabache in the Audi Cup, Spanish giant, Real Madrid are desperate to hijack Portuguese midfielder, Bruno Fernandes from the nose of Tottenham and Manchester United.
Fernandes has been one of the hottest commodities of the ongoing summer transfer window after a sensational 2018-19 campaign with Sporting.
The 25-year-old came up with a sensational return of 32 goals and 18 assists from 53 matches in all competitions, sparking widespread interest from several clubs across Europe.
With both Tottenham and Manchester United not willing to meet Sporting’s transfer fee demands for Fernandes, a window of opportunity has opened up for Real Madrid, who are also interested in signing the 25-year-old this summer, the report from Record adds.
Real Madrid have been on a spending spree this summer, recruiting the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic among others. However, manager Zinedine Zidane remains keen on refreshing his midfield department with a new signing. Manchester United’s Paul Pogba had been their primary target all summer, but with hopes of landing the Frenchman fading they are identifying alternatives.
Bruno Fernandes has all but confirmed that he will be leaving Sporting this summer. But, with Manchester United, Tottenham and Real Madrid all vying for his signature, it remains to be seen where the 25-year-old ends up come next season.
