Manchester United have been warned to be concerned about Bruno Fernandes’ body language as Real Madrid and Barcelona keep tabs on the midfielder.
The playmaker has lifted the Red Devils since he joined in January but United’s former assistant manager Steve McClaren is worried that his recent displays leave much to be desired.
McClaren believes he is out of sorts following rumours earlier this month linking him with a shock move to either of Spain’s biggest clubs.
And he is concerned about Fernandes’ body language, amid reports of behind-the-scenes unease with his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
During Uniited’s goalless draw against Chelsea, he told Talksport: “I’ve been watching Bruno Fernandes and he’s disappointed because he’s been taken out of the middle and he’s out on the right-hand side.
“His body language is not good, he’s not getting involved.”
His previously peerless penalty record has also not been up to its usual high standards this season.
Concerns of Fernandes’ demeanour coincides with rumours suggesting the El Clasico pair of Real Madrid and Barcelona are monitoring the 26-year-old, despite the fact he’s only been at Old Trafford for a year.
The Portuguese creative is not the only talented United midfielder Solskjaer has to worry about defecting to Spain.
Paul Pogba has recently said it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Madrid.
