Chasing Bruno Fernandes

Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:06 pm

Now this is one I'd really be excited about! If it's not all smoke and mirrors that is.

Skysports understand we're interested:

Manchester United want to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, Sky Sports News understands.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, is keen to bolster his midfield options after losing Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera over the past six months.

A source in Portugal claims the player's agent travelled to the UK yesterday to sound out possible options, with Sporting hoping to get more than £50m for Fernandes.

Fernandes signed a five-year contract last summer with a release clause of £31m. If a club meets his release clause - but Sporting refuse to sell - Fernandes is due a £4.5m payment.

Sporting President Frederico Varandas says there have been talks with Fernandes about his future and is hopeful any deal for the Portugal midfielder will be the most expensive sale in the club's history.

Fernandes scored 32 goals in 50 appearances last season.

In terms of other midfield targets, United are also interested in signing Newcastle's Sean Longstaff.

There is only one GOLDEN BOY

It's being reported in the Italian press that both Roma and Milan want him and he fancies Italy.He has triggered his buy out clause

Spoting Lisbon are reported as saying that they will do a no frills immediate transfer if United offer £55m and Ed Woodward has offered less than £35m thus leaving the door wide open for the lad to talk to other clubs.
This is presumably what you would call smoke and mirrors

Might as well offer £60m for Harry Kane.Same answer.Same result

Wait and see
