Source says; It shouldn't be long until this reaches a more comprehensive stage now to marketing. Secondary source (Like AWB) is positive on Bruno Fernandes being an #MUFC player this window.#BrunoFernandes #Bruno pic.twitter.com/S0kn2NRJ8C
Manchester United who were linked with Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes are now on the verge of losing out the attacking midfielder in this summer transfer window.
The publication Correio da Manha reports that the £70m asking price set by Sporting is considered a bit too much for the Red Devils. United are not ready to pay anything beyond £50m for a player who has very less experience of playing at the highest level.
