TOP STORY: Bruno Fernandes wants Man United move
Bruno Fernandes is hopeful the loyalty he has shown to Sporting Lisbon in the past will be repaid. How, you ask? By the Portuguese giants allowing him to join Manchester United, reports by The Daily Mail.
According to the outlet, a meeting between representatives from Man United and Sporting has taken place, in which an offer of £50 million plus add-ons has been made.
Showing his fidelity, the midfielder was touted to make a move away from the club in the summer but refused to force it through. Still not impressed? Fernandes has also injected his own money into the club in the past during times of need.
Having amassed 13 goals and 10 assists across Liga NOS and the Europa League this season, Fernandes’ hope is that the attitude he’s displayed will encourage Sporting to let him test his talents in the Premier League.
Man United send scouts to watch Moussa Dembele
United have seemingly been busy, because as well as making a move for Fernandes, they have been watching Moussa Dembele, as has been reported by French journalist Ignazio Genuardi.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are all also said to be keeping an eye on the 23-year-old, who has 11 Ligue 1 goals for Lyon so far this campaign.
The Old Trafford club are ready to hijack any potential deal from their Premier League rivals, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to add further firepower to his squad, despite Marcus Rashford’s exploits.
They will likely have been impressed by what they saw, as the former Celtic man scored the winner in a 2-1 win against Bordeaux, just three minutes after assisting Maxwel Cornet’s equaliser.
– Chelsea, Manchester United, Juventus and AC Milan have all sent scouts to watch 19-year-old Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla, reported Calciomercato.
They are said to have gone to watch him face Genoa, a game in which he came out as a 2-1 winner having played the full 90 minutes in their back three.
– Juventus are set to use the help of Mino Raiola in order to get talented Dutch duo Ryan Gravenberch and Calvin Stengs, of Ajax and AZ Alkmaar respectively, according to Calciomercato.
