In a recent report from Mirror, it was mentioned that Real Madrid have reignited their interest in Bruno Fernandes after the Portuguese Midfielder revitalised his form under Erik Ten Hag. Carlo Ancelotti wants to add more depth to the midfield department and Fernandes could be a brilliant addition looking at his form in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Fernandes’ Campaign With Manchester United This Season

Fernandes has somewhat struggled to make himself productive at Old Trafford this season which was the result of his influence and form being noticeably waned in the past couple of months. The 28-year-old has been involved in 19 matches for Man United during this campaign, finding the back of the net twice and providing one assist across all fronts.

The Maia-born sensation has shown glimpses of recovering back to form after Ten Hag’s arrival as he is performing consistently as evidenced by his numbers averaging 2.0 tackles, 2.0 shots, 2.5 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in the Premier League. However, he has to work on his ball distribution in the opponent’s half as he has only completed 77.8% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

Can Real Madrid Boss Ancelotti Convince The Red Devils To Sanction His Exit?

Fernandes is exceptionally skilful with the ball and can make some dangerous runs towards the opposition’s penalty area. He has got the vision to find open teammates in the final third and can bang in a few important goals for his team when he is playing with confidence on a regular basis. Furthermore, he doesn’t mind putting his foot into a tackle and remains an extremely hard worker on the pitch when on defence.

Madrid can definitely use someone of Fernandes’ quality if he remains in form as could certainly add more goals and bring more creativity to Carlo Ancelotti’s attack. At 28, he is currently in his prime and can continue playing at a high level for a couple of years. The Portuguese midfielder is versatile enough to play as a right-sided wide player and as an attacking midfielder when required.

But it wouldn’t be easy for Los Blancos to acquire him in the upcoming transfer windows as the Portugal international is undoubtedly a key player for Ten Hag’s attacking department and the United Boss has put a lot of faith in him. His contract runs until the summer of 2026 and the Red Devils won’t sanction his exit unless they get an enticing offer that could change their minds.
