Real eye Sporting Lisbon winger

Real Madrid have scouted Portugal winger Gelson Martins on three occasions, reports Marca.

Martins impressed against the European champions during Sporting Lisbon’s 2-1 defeat at the Bernabeu in September and Real have kept tabs on him ever since.

Club officials have been despatched to scout him in action on three occasions since and they are expected to watch him closely when the two clubs meet again in Lisbon on Tuesday night.

Man Utd are also believed to be keen on the 21-year-old.
