According to Record, Real Madrid have joined Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the race for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

It has been reported by the Portuguese publication that United are interested in signing Fernandes from Sporting in the summer transfer window.

The report has also claimed that Tottenham’s offer of €60 million (£54.92m) for the 24-year-old midfielder has been turned down, with Sporting looking for €70m (£64.07m) as transfer fee for the Portugal international.

It has also been claimed that Spanish and European giants Madrid have joined the race for the former Udinese and Sampdoria midfielder.

Twist

Tottenham’s reported bid of €60m (£54.92m) for Fernandes shows just how keen they are on the midfielder, but Madrid now pose a major problem.

Madrid are much more attractive than Spurs, and Los Blancos could also pay the €70m (£64.07m) that Sporting reportedly want and could also offer better salary to the midfielder.

With the summer transfer window in England set to close in a matter of days, Tottenham are facing a race against time to land Fernandes.
