Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes revealed a fact that is rarely known to the public, about him who almost moved to Tottenham Hotspur before joining Manchester United.
The charm of Bruno Fernandes has indeed been seen since the 2018/19 season campaign yesterday along with Sporting CP. Despite playing as an attacking midfielder, he was able to score so many goals for the Portuguese club, scoring 20 goals in domestic competition.
Not only scored, he was even able to create opportunities for his colleagues, as evidenced by the 13 assists recorded. With such slick statistics, it is only natural that Bruno Fernandes will be in demand by a number of European giants.
Manchester United is even believed to have made an offer for the midfielder since the transfer window last summer. But the news was not true, it was Tottenham Hotspur who actively approached Bruno Fernandes.
This was revealed directly by the person concerned, he even had already reached a personal agreement with the London club. Unfortunately, there is no agreement between Tottenham and Sporting CP.
“The first club that almost bought me was Tottenham with Pochettino. But I didn’t know maybe they thought Sporting’s price was too much so at that moment Sporting decided they didn’t want to let me go, ”Bruno Fernandes was quoted by Sportsmole.
Then, six months ago Tottenham Hotspur again tried a similar effort, but at the same time Manchester United also came up with an offer. Upon hearing of the interest of the Red Devils, Bruno did not think long enough to accept the proposal.
“Maybe Tottenham will come again in January, but when I know Manchester United are interested, I just want to talk to Manchester United,” he stressed.
The player finally moved to Old Trafford after being redeemed with a dowry of 55 million euros. For Bruno, his move to Manchester United was like a dream come true.
“Manchester United is my dream team in England, so I am happy because I have the opportunity to go to the team that I have always dreamed of,” Bruno Fernandes said.
The player performed brilliantly with Manchester United, scoring 3 goals and 1 assist in the Premier League so far.
