Manchester United Pushing For Bruno Fernandes To Miss Lisbon Derby

Fernandes in the dark over Man United transfer, says Silas

This may be the reason behind Sporting's additional demands for Fernandes and hopefully, United can find the breakthrough at the earliest such that the midfielder can be integrated into the team ahead of a busy schedule which includes key games in the FA Cup and League Cup. Let's see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming hours.

Fernandes, meanwhile, has continued his fine run of form with 15 goals and 13 assists in 25 outings across all competitions so far this season.

Manchester United do appear to be in need of a player like Fernandes, with midfield a department that is in desperate of reinforcements.

The Red Devils have now lost Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay to injury so the Portuguese sensation would be arriving at the ideal time. He can score goals from midfield which is something that is missing at Manchester United at the moment.

"It is clear that he needs other players to play with, but he is someone I am fairly convinced that he can make a pretty immediate impression on Manchester United". Indeed, Pogba's absence has dried up goals from the midfielders as well.

That said, things can change quickly, and that progress, or otherwise, will largely be down to Manchester United.

But Sporting Lisbon are adamant that they will only agree to sell Fernandes after he features in the Lisbon derby.

With those three scenarios rather unlikely to happen in the near future, Sporting are aiming to get a larger initial fee from United. Sporting value Fernandes at around €80 million while United are keen to pay closer to €60m. The player was supposed to compete for Sporting on Friday night before traveling to England on Sunday to see Man United in action at Anfield rival Liverpool. For now, Sporting's demands of a €65 million payment seem to have been deemed as unrealistic.
