Manchester United move for Bruno Fernandes OFF

Manchester United move for Bruno Fernandes is OFF as they ‘refuse to meet £68m asking price for midfielder’

Manchester United’s move for Bruno Fernandes is reportedly off after they refused to meet Sporting Lisbon’s £68million asking price.

United believe the demands are ‘unreasonable’ and have elected to break off from negotiations, according to The Sun.

United had been confident of completing a £55m deal for the Portugal midfielder this week.

Talks between the two clubs hit an impasse over the weekend after the Portuguese giants were unhappy with the structuring of the deal.

The two clubs have been at loggerheads over the fee, with Sporting demanding a minimum of £55.3m and as much as £68m, while United want to spend no more than £42m for the Portugal international.

Too much of United’s initial offer was based on add-ons that Sporting deemed unlikely to occur and therefore there was very little progression in negotiations over the 25-year-old midfielder.

The Portugal international has scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists in 26 appearances for Sporting this season across all competitions.
