Loads of Man Utd fans demand €70m transfer as Fernandes admits Premier League ambition

We have been hearing the Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United links all summer.

Most fans seem to think the Sporting Lisbon midfielder is exactly what the Reds need, so it is frustrating that seemingly little progress has been made in attempts to sign him.

Fernandes scored 32 goals for Sporting last campaign, and starred in Portugal’s inaugural Nations League triumph in June.

The 24-year-old is the creative influence that would be perfect in midfield, and also seems a very attainable option given his ambition to play in England.

“The president decides that, not me. I don’t care about the market, I’ve talked about this many times. The only thing I can do now is catch the plane so I don’t miss it. Will this be the last match for Sporting? I don’t know, it’s the coach who decides. I told you I’d like to play in England, but that’s not what interests me. It may be when the club decides,” the Portuguese international said as quoted by A Bola.

According to fellow Portuguese publication Record, United could sign Fernandes for €70m this summer, but are looking to open the bidding at €62m.

The valuation set by Sporting seems reasonable given the nature of the highly-inflated market and the Reds should definitely look to pull this deal off.

Here’s what some United fans think:
