Bruno in the dark about Man United Transfer, says Silas

Marcus Rashford goes down clutching his back

The Portugal worldwide has been the name on everyone's lips this month and despite appearing to be on his way out the door at Sporting CP, Fernandes was involved in Friday's Lisbon Derby - much to the disappointment of United fans who thought a deal was close.

The Red Devils are now in negotiations with Sporting over a move for the 25-year-old and, although the two sides are yet to agree on a fee, a deal is believed to be close.

Fernandes played in Sporting's defeat to Benfica on Friday, after which head coach Silas admitted he did not know if that was to be the midfielder's last game for the club.

"I would prefer that he not leave", Silas added.

The deal proposed by United is said to include bonuses for Sporting if they win the Premier League or Champions League while Fernandes is there and an additional payment if he ever wins the Ballon d'Or. This season, he has featured in 24 games in all competitions (18 starts) and directly contributed in 4 goals (3 goals and 1 assist). So far we don't know and Bruno doesn't know either.


"We'll try to keep him for more games, but it's not up to us". The only wish I have is the best for him.

"We understand the ambition of the player, who prefers to play in a league superior to ours".

It is likely that negotiations will resume next week, with United keen to sign Fernandes having identified him as their primary target in the January transfer window.

As a effect, no further discussions are planned for this weekend between the two clubs but it's likely negotiations will resume at some point next week, Skysports report.
