Transfer saga could be nearly over as midfielder sends strong hint he’s on the move

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes was crying on the pitch after last night’s friendly against Valencia, suggesting that he might have played his last game for the Portuguese side.

The Reds have been rumoured to be in for Fernandes all summer, while Manchester United have also been strongly linked with him, with some reports claiming a deal for him to go to Old Trafford has been sealed.

When the Reds played Sporting last week, Jordan Henderson shared a joke with him at full-time, while Jurgen Klopp was effusive in his praise of the goalscorer, calling him a ‘top player’.

There is no reliable suggestion that the Reds are in for Fernandes – as much as we’d like that to be the case – but it seems a conclusion to the saga could be coming soon. It would, of course, be a big disappointment if he was to go to United.
