Real Madrid, Barcelona monitoring Gremio defender Mario Fernandes

Real Madrid and Barcelona are circling for Gremio defender Mario Fernandes.

The 19 year-old has been likened to Inter Milan centre-half Lucio and both Real and Barca's Brazilian scouts have delivered glowing reports on his progress.

Fernandes has played just 19 senior games with Gremio, but looks a natural and local sources say a move to Europe is likely over the next 12 months.
