Sporting boss talks Bruno Fernandes to Man Utd
Sporting Lisbon manager Silas admitted he “cannot confirm” whether or not Bruno Fernandes has played his last game for the club amid interest from Manchester United.
Fernandes cap tained Sporting as they defeated Maritimo 1-0 in the Primeira Liga on Monday night, although the Lions are still points off league leaders Benfica and nine adrift of second-placed Porto.
But the Sporting boss could offer no insight as to whether Fernandes is any nearer a switch to Old Trafford, having also missed out on a move to Tottenham back in the summer.
“I cannot confirm that it was his last game , “Silas said after Sporting’s victory.
” I would like him to stay, but I can’t say whether he stays or not.
“I would like to count on him at least until the end of the season. Bruno is a different player. He started to play in the front, we moved him further back.
“He sees things that nobody sees – diagonal movements, long passes. Being further back and seeing these movements, the opposing line drops further, because he starts making passes.
“Any team in Portugal that had Bruno and lost him would suffer. We will resent it if we lose him. If we do, we will have to look for solutions. ”
While his stratospheric wages, which can reach £ , a week with bonuses factored in, mean only a handful of clubs could realistically afford him if they were inclined to make a move.
