Real Madrid and Barcelona ‘ready to do battle to sign Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes’ just eight months into his Old Trafford spell… despite star man rubbishing talk of a bust-up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Real Madrid and Barcelona are set to do battle to sign Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes, according to a sensational new report.
Both LaLiga clubs are said to be keeping a close eye on Fernandes’ progression at Old Trafford just eight months after his move from Sporting Lisbon.
The Sun claim that Fernandes was left irked after being hauled off in the heavy defeat at the hands of Tottenham – and the Portugal international may already find himself taking up a new challenge with his current side gripped in turmoil.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly set to do battle to sign playmaker Bruno Fernandes
Fernandes joined the Premier League giants in January and proved to be a crucial influence behind United clinching a Champions League place on the final day of last season.
He was also a regular performer in the team’s progression to the Europa League semi-finals.
The 26-year-old has netted 14 goals in total across all competitions since the £68million switch and is undoubtably one of the more vocal players in the club’s dressing room.
The Manchester United star was claimed to have been furious during the defeat to Tottenham
Recent reports suggested that his no holds barred attitude has led to him becoming disillusioned with life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – although both he and his manager have angrily swatted the speculation away.
With United trailing Spurs 4-1 at the interval before the international break, it was claimed that Fernandes had exploded into a venomous rant at his team-mate and the under-fire Solskjaer.
The reported verbal volley is even said to have centred around the coach’s choice of tactics. Fernandes refuted the wild talk in his homeland, however, and insisted it was simply an attempt to drive a wedge between United’s players.
The humiliating reverse forced United to head into the two-week wait in dreadful form.
