Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes transfer in danger of COLLAPSING over Sporting’s astonishing £68million price-tag – The Sun


BRUNO FERNANDES’ move to Manchester United is in danger of collapse over Sporting Lisbon’s astonishing £68million price-tag.

SunSport understands United are willing to offer £42.5m up front with a further £8.5m in add-ons.

But there is little sign of Sporting budging from their valuation and United believe Fernandes is overvalued at that price.

And while Old Trafford chiefs are yet to walk away from the negotiating table, they will not be held to ransom over the Portugal midfielder.

Tottenham offered £34m in the summer but Sporting swatted away their offer.

Fernandes played in the Lisbon derby last night as his move to United stalled.

Because Sporting borrowed against the sale of Fernandes last summer, technically they are only due to clear around 50 per cent of any fee.

United were hoping to drive Sporting’s price down, knowing they are in need of money.

But they are finding the Portuguese outfit – who are said to be closing in on a deal for Fernandes’ replacement – will not be forced to sell on the cheap.

Fernandes is expected to receive wages of around £120,000 a week if the deal gets over the line.
