Man Utd Transfer Rumour: Coentrao to Snub Old Trafford for Bernabeu?
English tabloid newspaper The Sun claims this morning that Benfica left-back Fabio Coentrao, 23, has his heart set on a move to join compatriot Jose Mourinho's Galatico revolution in the white half of Madrid.
The Portuguese youngster, valued in the region of $30 million, is said to have drawn the attentions of Barcelona and Manchester United scouts also but his preferred destination is the Spanish capital:
''I know that Manchester United and Barcelona are interested in me...I can only hope that my dream of playing for Real Madrid can become a reality,'' said Coentrao.
With Benfica ending the 2010/2011 season without any honours, they will struggle to keep hold of a player who already has 12 caps for his country and 50 club appearances to his name, and should in time become one of the best full-backs in world football.
