Man Utd owners the Glazers intervene on Bruno Fernandes transfer with Sporting message


Manchester United’s owners, the Glazers, have
reportedly told Sporting Lisbon they’ll only sign Bruno Fernandes if the Primeira Liga
giants drop their high asking price for the 25-year-old. The Portugal international’s future is up
in the air with the January transfer deadline creeping closer. Manchester United have spent the last few
weeks talking with Sporting about a deal for Fernandes – months after initially claiming
they weren’t interested in a transfer deal. The Portugal international has been in sublime
form for his club this season, scoring 15 goals across all competitions. United said back in the summer that Fernandes
wasn’t on their radar but they’ve changed their mind since, now believing him to be
a worthy recruit. The Red Devils have seen both Jesse Lingard
and Juan Mata struggle in the No 10 position this season. And United are keen to make Fernandes their
big-money signing of the winter transfer window, having missed out on Erling Haaland to Borussia
Dortmund last month. And they’ve made it clear they won’t sign
Fernandes unless the Portuguese giants drop their huge asking price for the playmaker. Sporting value the player at close to £70million
but United, as things stand, aren’t willing to spend that much. They instead believe Fernandes to be worth
closer to £40m and, as things stand, there appears little chance of a compromise. United have always insisted they’ll only sign
players for the right price at this point in time. They’re eager to learn from past mistakes,
having overpaid on the likes of Alexis Sanchez (wages), Angel Di Maria, Memphis Depay and
Romelu Lukaku over the years. And whether the Red Devils are able to finally
bring Fernandes to Old Trafford this month is something only time will tell.
