Manchester United target hints at Atletico Madrid interest

Published Add your comment

Manchester United teen striker target Bruno Gomes has hinted at interest from Atletico Madrid after he received the club's shirt as a gift and posted the picture on his Instagram.

On his Twitter account @B9oficial, Bruno Gomes posted an Instagram picture of an Atletico Madrid shirt with his name on the back, along with the message "Presentinho!! Grácias #atleticomadrid."

The 17-year-old impressed on trial with United last summer, and reports have claimed an Old Trafford move remains his first choice.

He's thought to be in Europe on a month-long vacation and visited the Vicente Calderon earlier this week - but he addressed the interest from United on his Twitter account after his was asked by a United fan.

Gomes was asked: "you signing/signed for @mufc yet or not?" to which Gomes replied "I don't know ahahahaah".

Sir Alex Ferguson was thought to be a big fan of the teenage forward after he spent a brief spell training with the Old Trafford club.

And David Moyes is believed to be just as keen to sign him up, although a number of European teams - the latest being Atletico Madrid - could scupper United's hopes.

The 17-year-old has also been linked with Real Madrid, Udinese and Sao Paolo within the last month.
