Former Manchester United target Bruno Fernandes could be set to join European rivals instead
And Fernandes could now move to the Santiago Bernabeu instead, with European clubs having until Monday to complete their transfer business.
That is the view of Prade, who told Corriere dello Sport that he expects a deal to go through in the next 48 hours.
The Fiorentina supremo has been in talks with Sporting over a potential move for midfielder Raphinha.
And Prade let slip that Fernandes, who scored 31 goals in all competitions last term, is on his way to Madrid.
