Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes is currently in the process of moving to Manchester United. According to media reports in Europe, Fernandes asked his club to make the transfer process easier.
Sporting actually doesn’t mind selling Fernandes to Manchester United, even though the player is the most important part of their midfield. However, obstacles arise when the price requested by Sporting is considered too high by the Red Devils.
The Sporting side reportedly asked for a fee of 60 million pounds to smooth out Fernandes’ move. But the Red Devils only afford 50 million pounds with an additional player namely Marcos Rojo.
aughtoffside.com, Monday ( 1/13 ) said the two club officials were having a meeting to find a middle ground from the price dispute. In the same report, it was mentioned that Bruno Fernandes had to ask the club for the transfer to be facilitated.
“The latest report is that the 25-year-old is pushing his club to be allowed to immediately join Manchester United,” the Caughtoffside.com report said.
Keep in mind, the release clause of the 25-year midfielder reached 85 million pounds, or about Rp1.5 trillion. He has scored 12 goals and 10 assists in 29 matches with Sporting.
