As we have covered earlier in our reports, Manchester United were interested in signing Sporting CP Midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
The Portuguese Star is having a phenomenal season at Sporting with the Midfielder notching up 31 goals from MIDFIELD thus breaking Frank Lampard’s European record of 27 goals in a season.
On top of that, Bruno has also racked up 17 assists which is crazy good if you think about the number of goals he has directly been involved in.
Manchester United were obviously interested in signing the 24-year-old given the lacks of goals and assists from the midfield but now it’s reported that Manchester City has overtaken us in the race to sign the Portuguese star and could even complete the deal for a meagre £47m.
Manchester United fans are obviously not happy with this news and they have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations:

Ed Woodward, he’s done it again.

This is why there’s no point throwing names about because is any other club come in for them we won’t get them. Who would even want to play for United right now without a proper structure and plan in place? Shambles man

The biggest flop of a CEO in world football. Still no DOF and behind in every principle

Do you think Bruno Fernandes would be a good signing for us?
