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.

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

Ed strikes again ....

From Skysports:
Bruno Fernandes is unlikely to join Manchester United this summer, Sky Sports News understands.

The Sporting Lisbon midfielder has been scouted by United, but he is not one of their priority signings.

United are also yet to decide which players will be leaving Old Trafford in the next few weeks, which would need to happen before any potential deal could be done.

Fernandes has expressed his desire to move to England, and scored in Sporting's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Thursday morning.

However, it is believed most of the speculation linking the Portugal international has been driven from his homeland, rather than Manchester.

While Fernandes is not at the top of United's wishlist, they do still want to sign a central midfielder this summer, as well as a centre-back and winger.

'We know clubs like Fernandes'
Sporting manager Marcel Keizer has admitted clubs are keen to sign Fernandes and that he does not know if the 24-year-old will stay at the club.

After seeing his side hold Liverpool to a draw, he said: "I can say about Bruno that he's a very good player and he's important for us.

"Of course everybody would like him to stay but we don't know the situation at the moment. He is here but we don't know what the future will bring, so we will have to wait.

"We know that clubs like him, so we have to see what's going to happen."

Klopp: I don't like Fernandes to Man United
Jurgen Klopp is sure to be pleased with the news that Fernandes is unlikely to join United having admitted he was not a fan of the idea.

"Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United? He's obviously a really good player," said Klopp. "They have already a few really good players so that would make them stronger and that's not nice.

"It's not our cup of tea to be honest."

As predicted this is just yet another Glazernomics summer which exactly mirrors the decline in Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Despite all the open comments by influential people at the club such as Ole who "was going to clear the club out" what has happened is exactly the same as every other Ed Woodward/Glazers transfer window which is fornicate all of any importance
So far two players(Herrara and Valencia have left) and two have joined(James and Wan-bassaka)
Wan-Bassaka is just a straight and young replacement for Valencia who at his peak was argueably the most consistent player in our club
Yes we had to pay a fee for Wan-Bassaka but in todays transfer market it was not huge.They have put 25% down with Crystal palace and the balance which is paid over 3 years will be funded by the saving in wages from what they were paying Valencia against the lesser amount they are paying Wan-Bassaka.James was bought for relative pennies and as an unproven kid is on next to nothing

All the "other" transfers are rumours only and follow the pattern of every one of the last ten seasons under these thieves
Why do we have to sell before we buy?
Where has ALL the cash gone?
I feel sure that there will be a signing or two before the season starts.But will they be to improve the team or the social media hits?
Will Lukaku and/or Pogba be around,now the face of China is no longer needed as the tour is almost done
