Bruno Fernandes has been linked with a move away from Sporting (Picture: Getty) Sporting Lisbon have set an asking price of £55m plus performance-related add-ons for Bruno Fernandes amid interest in him from Manchester United and Spurs. The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League following a sensational 2018-19 campaign which saw him score 20 league goals from midfield. Both United and Spurs are interested in luring the Portugal international away from his homeland, but Sporting have proven to be tough negotiators throughout the summer. According to the Sunday Times, Spurs have been asked to increase their offer after making a £46m bid plus a further £9.1m paid in bonuses last week. Fernandes has informed Sporting of his desire to leave the club this summer (Picture: Getty) Fernandes has reportedly informed Sporting’s bosses of his desire to move to Spurs and hopes that the club will not stand in the way of him moving to London. Despite signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, Mauricio Pochettino is on the lookout for an attacking midfielder with speculation surrounding Christian Eriksen’s future. Real Betis’ Argentine playmaker Giovani Lo Celso is another player reportedly on the Champions League finalist’s radar. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, is looking to add more creativity to his side and both Fernandes and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala have been linked with moves to Old Trafford. Fernandes has established himself as a regular in Portugal’s starting XI since his move to Sporting from Sampdoria in 2017 and helped his country win the inaugural UEFA Nations League. Despite speculation surrounding his future, Sporting’s boss Marcel Keizer hinted that Fernandes could be involved in the Portuguese Super Cup against Benfica on Sunday.
