Manchester United continue to be linked with Sporting CP attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes and the latest reports are intriguing.
According to Record, Man Utd are preparing a move worth 62 million euros (£56million) to sign the Portuguese international in the summer transfer window.
The issue is that the above mentioned offer might not be enough to secure the signing of the 24-year-old attacker.
Transfer: Report – Man Utd hottest on the chase, £72million enough to get signing done
Frederico Varandas has recently claimed (RTP) that 62 million euros would not be enough to lure the Seleccao star. The president of the Primeira Liga club also claimed that if Fernandes leaves, then the team will be reinforced with quality players.
As far as the price tag is concerned, earlier this month, renowned Portuguese outlet, Correio da Manha, reported that Varandas wants 70 million euros (£63million) for Sporting CP’s prized asset.
Bruno Fernandes scored 32 goals in all competitions last season, more than the combined sum of goals scored by our two main strikers i.e. Lukaku and Rashford.
The former Serie A attacker helped Sporting CP win two cup titles and he directly contributed in 50 goals in all competitions in the last campaign. Not to forget, he was a key member of the Portuguese team that won the inaugural UEFA Nations League last month.
Fernandes plays in the central attacking midfield role and in that position, we do not have a natural top quality player, therefore, he would be a top addition.
So far, Solskjaer has only lured Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James this summer but the Norwegian manager must further strengthen the squad before the start of the new Premier League campaign.
We have done well in the pre-season so far. The Red Devils have won all their pre-season fixtures this summer without conceding a single goal and next up, we will face Spurs on Thursday.
Too late to complete the deal!!, I just wish to hear that the deal is done latest by the end of this week because it has been just a song of every day!!!!
I advise ED woodward to quickly sign Bruno Fernandes for Man. United no matter what it cost because he is very, very good. I promise you that you will definitely enjoy him from the very beginning. NOTE:The entire Man. United fans will never be happy and may not be willing to buy Man. United tickets should you miss out in the signing of this all-important player. You may not know and they may not tell you why. So, sign him now for you will never regret it.
Too much talk, too little action. Can I hear from edwood? When are we really having this guy join us?
Remember Van Dijk
I wonder why is taking forever to sign him,check his profile he has done incredibly well, if city are in interested they will have sign long ago without much hesitation. Man.utd lack the urgency to deal decisively to issue requiring urgent attention.
Check out the midfield apart from pogba any other creative player.No,we need more creative player with killer pass,eyes on the goal.look at city,Kelvin,David silver,gundogan,Hernando.all with killer instinct,Ed pls wake up
