Real Madrid Surprise statement from Fiorentina sporting director
Fiorentina‘s sporting director, Daniele Prade, believes that Bruno Fernandes is set for a move to Real Madrid.
Prade made the surprise claim during the presentation of Dalbert, La Viola’s latest summer signing.
Fiorentina had been keen on Sporting CP‘s Brazilian forward Raphinha but Prade stated that their pursuit of the player was over due to Fernandes‘ imminent move to Los Blancos.
“Raphinha must be off the market because Bruno Fernandes is off to [Real] Madrid for 70 million euros,” Prade stated.
As a result, Prade insists that Sporting could not afford to lose another player in that position.
Madrid have been linked with the Portuguese international during the summer window, particularly after failing to land Paul Pogba and Prade’s words will have aroused curiosity with just days remaining before the transfer deadline.
