​Man Utd, Real Madrid threaten Man City plans for River Plate midfielder Enzo Fernandez

Manchester United are emerging as the latest suitors for River Plate sensation Enzo Fernandez.

The 21-year-old has been impressing scouts from Europe with his displays in South America.

According to TyC Sports, two clubs are emerging as the most likely to sign Fernandez this summer.

They are Manchester United and Real Madrid, with Merlo stating that both clubs have held talks with Fernandez and River about a deal.

The player has a release clause of £16.6 million, but that could go up by a few million in the coming months.

Price is unlikely to deter any European clubs from signing the box-to-box midfielder, and his destination will likely depend on where he can see himself playing the most games.
