Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are reported to be monitoring the situation of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United.
The Portuguese international, a January signing from Sporting Lisbon in a £67 million deal in January, was in sensational form for the Reds in the second half of last season for the Reds, scoring 12 goals in 22 appearances, helping them to a third-placed finish in the Premier League.
However, like much of the rest of the team, he has struggled so far this season and was very unhappy about being substituted at half-time during United’s home thrashing by Tottenham two weeks ago.
Then on international duty with Portugal, he gave am interview to local media in which he was critical of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his tactics.
Now the Spanish giants are reported to be watching developments with interest, although Solskjaer has tried to downplay the situation, saying that it comes with the territory for a United player.
