According to recent report, another new twist has emerged in Manchester United’s summer pursuit of Sporting Lisbon’s star Bruno Fernandes.
Earlier this week, respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio had reported that a deal for the player to join the club was all but done.
But Sporting have refuted such claims and are adamant that they are yet to receive a bid from the Red Devils for the 24-year-old.
Representatives from Sporting had this to say in a Portuguese publication RTP:
“The rumours are completely false.”
Fernandes’ long-term future is likely to be decided after the 2019 Portuguese Super Cup clash on Sunday when Sporting will take on Benfica.
