Manchester United have made another improved bid for Sporting Lisbon Star Bruno Fernandes, according to the latest reports.
Bruno Fernandes is one of the hottest properties in world football right now as he is being courted by most of the top clubs across Europe, including both the clubs in Manchester.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be a big admirer of the Midfielder who scored 27 goals and provided 13 assists in the Primiera League last season from the Central Midfield.
That staggering number has also caught the eye of Pep Guardiola who is a fan of Bruno’s slick style of play and wants him as a long term successor to David Silva at Manchester City.
Manchester United have already made an opening bid for the Midfielder which was subsequently rejected by the Portuguese Club.
But, the Red Devils have returned with another bid of £58m with another £13.3m in performance-based add-ons.
Ed Woodward and co. are still waiting for a response from the Portuguese Club, but it’s been suggested that Sporting Lisbon are set to reject that bid too as they are holding onto at least £80m for their star midfield player.
With Manchester City in the mix as well, Sporting knows that they can squeeze out astronomical amount of money for Bruno Fernandes and that’s what they are after.
Would Ed Woodward be willing to pay the asking price for the 24-year-old still remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, the Manchester United fans have made their feelings known about the player.
