Desportivo youngster Gomes is a highly rated starlet.
Both Manchester United and Udinese showed interest in signing Desportivo Brazil wonderkid Bruno Gomes recently and now Real Madrid have joined the hunt, according to the Daily Star.
The 17-year-old went on trial with the Red Devils and was expected to sign for the club as the teenager neared his 18th birthday, but as yet nothing has happened.
Sao Paulo are desperate to scupper United’s efforts and land the youngster themselves, but Old Trafford is thought to be Gomes’ preferred destination.
Now retired manager Sir Alex Ferguson was a huge admirer of the Brazilian and has passed on to successor David Moyes what the Scot thinks of the young talent.
United have a solid reputation for developing youth players and the success of their latest protege, Adnan Januzaj, was there for all to see at the weekend.
Moyes handed the 18-year-old the winger’s first Premier League start against Sunderland on Saturday and the Januzaj repaid that faith with two goals to win the match 1-2.
Several of the current first team players – such as Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Brazilian twins Fabio and Rafael Da Silva – came through the ranks at United’s academy.
The club is now hoping to make Gomes the latest in an illustrious list of names to learn their trade in the red half of Manchester.
