They have been looking at Alvarez’s team-mate, 21-year-old midfielder Fernandez.

But according to Argentine-based journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, Man Utd and Real have joined the race for the exciting prospect.

Both clubs have already began talks but formal offers are yet to be submitted.

Fernandez reportedly has a £16.5million release clause which could rise to just over £20m.

Man Utd are in desperate need of bolstering their midfield options.

Midfield has been an issue for the Red Devils for some time, with big players like Paul Pogba struggling with consistency.

The Frenchman’s contract is also up at the end of this season and can leave for FREE.

That means Pogba WILL need to be replaced.


Fernandez would also provide good competition for McFred.

Fred and Scott McTominay are the preferred double pivot sat in front of United’s back four.

West Ham’s Declan Rice is another option for Man Utd.

But he would cost five or six times more than Fernandez.
