Man United pull plug on Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes deal

1 min read

Manchester United have reportedly pulled
out of negotiations with Sporting Lisbon
over a deal to sign Bruno Fernandes.
*
*
*
The Portugal midfielder has been the subject
of talks between the clubs over recent
weeks, and it was expected Fernandes
would get the move he has wanted.
*
*
But talks reached an impasse last Friday and
it seems little progress has been made since
then, despite United’s performances
demonstrating the need for quality
reinforcements.
*
*
United had offered £42.5million with
another £8.5million possibly due in add-ons
but Sporting have been looking for a larger
chunk of any fee to be paid upfront.
*
Indeed, The Sun is reporting that United
have backed off in the face of Sporting’s
demands.
Apparently, ‘United co-chairman Joel Glazer,
who signs off transfers, simply believes the
structure of the deal is not right and the
player is not worth what is being asked’.
*
*
The latest development won’t sit well with
supporters who protested against the
Glazer family and vice-chairman Ed
Woodward during Wednesday night’s
dismal 2-0 defeat to Burnley.
*
Reports in Portugal suggested such a
‘disaster’ could speed up the deal, but it
seems United won’t pay over the odds
despite the obvious need for new players.
