RUMOURS: Real Madrid tracking Sporting ace Gelson Martins

After a superb display at the Bernabeu, several top clubs are reportedly chasing the Portugal international winger and Los Blancos are seeking to lead the way

Real Madrid will send a scout to watch Sporting CP’s Champions League meeting with Borussia Dortmund as they wish to follow the progress of Gelson Martins.

According to Correio da Manha, the Bernabeu club are interested, not only in the progress of their two group rivals, but also in the Portugal international right winger.

After a stunning display as Sporting were denied in Spain on the opening night of the competition, several big European clubs, including Barcelona, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have followed his fortunes.

He has a €60 million release clause but is paid only €120,000 per year. As a result, Sporting are trying to negotiate new terms with the 21-year-old.
