Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes denies that he has held talks with Manchester United over a potential move to Old Trafford.
Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has denied that he has held talks with Manchester United over a potential move to Old Trafford in this summer’s transfer window.
Fernandes enjoyed a stunning 2018-19 campaign for Sporting, scoring 32 times and contributing 18 assists in 53 appearances in all competitions.
Manchester United have been strongly linked with the Portugal international over the last few months.
However, the 24-year-old has said that there has been ‘no contact with any club’.
“I’m with Sporting. There are no contacts with any club, at least as far as I know. There is a lot of talk, there are sure to be clubs interested but to this day, my focus has always been placed on Sporting. Now I want to rest because I have a lot to give to the national team,” Fernandes told Record.
“I’ve spent two intense years, I don’t know if I will spend a third year, I don’t know if I’m going to leave. No one knows the future. I gave my best – blood, sweat and tears for this club – and will continue to do so whenever I wear this jersey.”
Fernandes has a contract at the Estadio Jose Alvalade until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
