Real Madrid open talks over Bruno Fernandes signing

Real Madrid have began talks for the signing of midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP.

Goal reports that Fernandes has been a major target for Zinedine Zidane before the European transfer window finally closes on September 2.

Sources told Goal that a representative from the Liga club has met with the agent of the Sporting midfielder, with the Portuguese side having informed Los Blancos they want €80 million for the 24-year-old.

The amount is less than the €100m buyout clause in the player's contract, which doesn't expire until 2023.

Fernandes was part of France squad that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
