Federico Valverde EXCLUSIVE, Bruno Fernandes target for Real Madrid and Barca, Newcastle ratings – The Sun
Sources at Manchester United think Bruno Fernandes is ‘getting too big for his boots’, according to reports.
Fernandes was said to be furious at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to substitute him at half-time in the Red Devils’ 6-1 defeat to Tottenham a fortnight ago, and reportedly took some of his frustration out on his United teammates.
And according to the Independent, some people at the club have taken issue with the midfielder’s attitude.
Fernandes, 26, is thought to have become a vocal figure in the United dressing room since his £54million move from Sporting Lisbon in January.
He won the club’s player of the year award for last term after his mid-season arrival inspired United to a third-placed finish in the Premier League.
While United have officially denied any talk of a bust-up between Fernandes and Solskjaer, the way he spoke to his teammates at half-time against Spurs appears to have ruffled some feathers.
Those rumours have led to Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid monitoring Fernandes’ situation.
