Manchester United and Manchester City have been heavily linked with Sporting CP’s Bruno Fernandes and the latest update seems fruitful for the Red Devils.
Few days back, A Bola reported that both the Manchester clubs are crazy about signing the Portuguese attacking midfielder from the Primeira Liga club.
However, more recently, The Sun have exclusively revealed that the Sky Blues have cooled their interest in luring the 24-year-old star and now, he could end up moving to Man Utd.
The British outlet have mentioned that the Seleccao attacker has got a release clause of £86million in his contract but he could be lured for just £50million if clubs do not start a bidding war for him.
As reported by renowned Portuguese source Correio da Manhã last month, Sporting CP want at least 70 million euros (£60million) from the sale of their superstar.
United do need someone, who can effectively play in the No. 10 role behind the striker.
Veteran Mata needs to depart the club and record signing Pogba should only be deployed in his natural central midfield position.
Fernandes has already netted 31 goals in all competitions for the Portuguese club this season. Moreover, he has provided 17 assists as well. The stats are amazing taking into consideration that he is a central attacking midfielder and not a striker/winger.
I would love the club to sign the former Udinese star in the summer transfer window but if we have a real opportunity to lure a proven quality world class star like Dybala, then the club should opt to sign the Argentine.
In your view, who should United sign to strengthen their offense?
