Manchester United attacker Bruno Fernandes emerges as a transfer target for Barcelona and Real Madrid, according to a report.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly monitoring Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes.

The 26-year-old has been a huge success for United since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January, scoring 14 times and registering 10 assists in 26 appearances in all competitions.

There have been suggestions that Fernandes is losing faith in Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though, while he was allegedly unhappy with the club's summer transfer business.

According to The Sun, Madrid and Barca are preparing to battle for the Portugal international amid claims that he could be ready to move on at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Fernandes was substituted at the interval of United's 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur before the international break, with Solskjaer forced into a tactical reshuffle after Anthony Martial's red card.

The playmaker has a contract with the 20-time English champions until June 2025.
