Real Madrid are eyeing Sporting Lisbon superkid Bruma. The Portuguese whiz has been linked with a move to England, where Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all keen.

But Bruma's lawyer, Gomes Bebiano, said: "Neither Benfica nor Porto had any intention of signing the player.

"The only ones to appear with intent to hire the player are Real Madrid, PSV and Galatasaray."

Bruma is in a contract dispute with Sporting and pushing to be released from his current deal.
