Why is Bruno Fernandes wanted by Manchester United and Tottenham
Manchester United have held strong interest in Bruno Fernandes since the beginning of the summer transfer window. Even Spurs have expressed their desire to sign the 50 goal a season Sporting man but were put off by the astronomical price they were quoted.
In the last season with Sporting, Bruno Fernandes has contributed heavily in front of goal. The UEFA Nations League winner scored 32 goals and assisted another 18 for the Portuguese club Sporting. His transfer value almost doubled within the 2018-19 season as a result. All of this came as big clubs across Europe such as Juventus and Manchester United were looking to sign new midfielders. Tottenham too, are interested due to Christian Eriksen wanting to leave the club.
What’s the latest on Tottenham’s approach for the midfielder
While Tottenham may not have put in a bid like Manchester United, his signing will certainly be a coup for Spurs. Sky has already reported that Fernandes’ agent Miguel Pinho sounded out Tottenham, who obliged him with a meeting last wednesday. However, the details of that meeting are not clear yet.
Bruno Fernandes is one of a triplet of midfielders being heavily linked with Tottenham. The links also mention Giovani Lo Celso of Real Betis and Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele. None of the deals seems to be nearing completion anytime soon.
