Real Madrid will send scouts to watch Sporting Lisbon’s Gelson Martins
Martins impressed when Sporting travelled to the Spanish capital to take on Real Madrid in the group stage opener which they gave the European Champions a scare.
It was here that Martins impressed the Real Madrid hierarchy and they have now made the decision to watch the player more intently before making their move.
Madrid will have the excuse that they are merely running the rule over their opponents when they face both teams in their last two matches in the group which could prove to pivotal in who finishes 1st and 2nd.
As reported by futbol.com Los Blancos though will feel that they could well have control of the group by the time they face Sporting in their penultimate match and this will again allow them to run the rule over Martins.
