Man’U, no longer interested in Bruno Fernandes

MANCHESTER United will not make a move for Bruno Fernandes when the transfer window reopens in January, according to reports.

The Red Devils were keeping tabs on the Portugal international for much of the summer but were unable to agree on a price with Sporting Lisbon.

Instead of splashing huge cash on the midfielder, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to strengthen his defence and landed Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire for an accumulated £135million.

There was the suggestion that Manchester United would go back in for Fernandes in January, after he failed to complete a move away from Sporting.

Tottenham and Real Madrid were also sniffing around him in the summer, but it always appeared that United were in the driving seat.

But according to The Sun, the Red Devils will not attempt to land Fernandes in January as they would rather sign Christian Eriksen instead.

The Dane wants out at Tottenham and the north London club are open to selling as his contract expires at the end of the season.

Like Fernandes, Eriksen was linked with a move to Manchester United and Real Madrid this summer but remained at his current club.

The Dane would prefer a switch to Real Madrid, but Paul Pogba is also on the Spanish club’s radar meaning Manchester United may be his only option to leave Tottenham.

Eriksen hinted that he wanted out during the summer in an interview with Danish newspaper, Ekstra Bladet.

“I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new,” said Eriksen. “I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham – I will not be negative.

“But I have also said that I would like to try something new.

“I hope there will be a resolution during the summer. That’s the plan. In football you don’t know when a resolution will happen. It can happen anytime. Everyone wants the best to it to happen as soon as possible, but in football things take time.
