Bruno Fernandes linked with Real Madrid move

Real Madrid are set to make a deadline day move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese international has been linked with a transfer away from the Primeira Liga side this summer with a host of clubs from the Premier League and Serie A reported to be interested in him.

Fiorentina were heavily linked with a move for the 24-year old, and their sporting director Daniele Prade believes a move to the Santiago Bernabeu is imminent.

"Raphinha has been taken off the market by Sporting Lisbon.

"This is because Bruno Fernandes is moving to Real Madrid – for what I believe to be €70M."

Zinedine Zidane has been loosely linked with a move for Fernandes in recent weeks, and he would represent a cheaper option than the Frenchman's priority target Paul Pogba – who looks set to stay at Manchester United.
