Bruno Fernandes’ agent Jorge Mendes puts his client’s move to United in doubt
Bruno Fernandes’ possible move to Manchester is not in progress anymore. His agent Jorge Mendes said that he has no idea about the future of this transfer. He also stated that Sporting is in touch with other clubs too.
Bruno Fernandes is now leading Sporting Lisbon as a captain. He is one of the best performers on their side. Bruno Fernandes is playing really well at this moment. He played 16 games for the Portuguese side this season. In which he scored 8 goals and assisted 7 times. This Portuguese is a natural midfielder or can play as an attacking midfielder.
Bruno is a top target for most of the big European clubs. He has a market value of 60 million euros and his contract will expire in 2023. Manchester United fans are also excited to see him in a red-shirt. United are doing well in the final third but lacking creativity in the attacking middle.
Bruno’s agent is in doubt as the transfer is on hold
It is been a rumor for weeks that United and Sporting Lisbon are discussing for a possible transfer. But, any agreement regarding transfer and personal terms are yet to meet. In the meantime, Bruno’s agent has stated that he is in doubt if this deal will implement or not. Several clubs are contacting Lisbon at this time. But, Sporting is hopeful that the deal will happen.
Lack of creativity in the attacking midfield
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful to sign this player this month. Manchester United is in the crisis of an attacking midfielder and they are desperate to fill that gap. They got Mata, Pereira, and Lingard in their side who can play as an attacking midfielder. But none of them can make that much impact on the team. That is why United needs him the most.
United is delaying to make it final. If United missed him to sign, then it would be a big blow for the Red Devils. Ole needs him to complete his rebuilding of United.
