Fiorentina football director Daniele Prade talked to the press during Dalbert's presentation with the Italian club and delivered some shocking quotes about the future of Sporting Portugal's Bruno Fernandes.

"Raphinha might be out of the transfer block because Bruno Fernandes is going to join Real Madrid for €70 million," said Prade when asked about Raphinha, who is on Fiorentina's shortlist.

There have been some rumors about Madrid's interest in Fernandes but nothing seems certain. Los Blancos could be willing to add some depth to their midfield but Fernandes for €70 million might not be what the team needs considering that he could have a hard time competing with Kroos and Modric for a spot in the XI.

Madrid definitely need some reinforcements in that part of the field and Prade could definitely have some inside information about Fernandes' future if they're in talks with Sporting, so we will have to wait and see if these rumors end up being true before the transfer deadline.
