Fabrizio Romano has confirm United have sent a new improve offer for Fernandes. Agents seem more confident and Bruno could be travelling to Manchester as soon as tomorrow.

Let's hope the club seal this deal.

No it took Barcelona to enter the fray now it's up to the player I'm not sure he's gonae pick us I would imagine his mrs would rather stay in Barcelona than rainy Manchester hope I'm wrong tho.
If he does choose Barcelona them we only have ourselves to blame this deal should've been done weeks ago we have allowed barcelona into this deal when we had a clear run .

What a waste of a month if we have just paid what Sporting were asking all along.

Hard not to be negative tbh when we seem to be clowns in every facet of the club but you are right, a very good player if he signs, build the team around type of signing I'd dare say.

We have got him for a good price and not what they wanted at all, good deal, thank god.

No getting excited until. i know it's done and dusted its not negative it's just history of this club when it comes to transfers.
I will be ecstatic if it does go through this is just one of the pieces to get us back fighting.

I thought the whole Barcelona rumour sounded ridiculous.

Barcelona spend 55m on a player (Bruno) so they can loan him to Valencia to sweeten a deal for a 50m rated striker (Rodrigo) .

Which gets even sillier when you consider Jorge Mendes has been brought in by Sporting to help move Bruno Fernandes. The same Jorge Mendes who has an excellent relationship with Peter Lim the owner of Valencia. So why would Valencia want Barcelona to buy one of their targets so they could loan him, just at a time when they receive a fee for one of their players in the same region cost wise as the player they would like to buy.

It's bonkers, and probably absolutely horse 💩. If Barcelona want to sweeten a deal for Rodrigo they could probably do it for significantly less than the 55m it would cost to sign Bruno.

Well hopefully Bruno realises that Barcelona only want him, so they can loan him out to get the signing they really want which is a striker from Valencia I believe
Depends on what Bruno wants from his career, To be worshiped at MUFC or quite easily be a bench warmer at Barcelona, Hopefully he makes the right decision and is an absolute star for us . Just the pick me up us fans need right now. Feel more comfortable tho when he is pictured holding up our shirt.

Good to finally get our man. But isn't the £70m basically what they were asking for from the beginning?

It’s £46m + add ons so a pretty good deal, we won’t mind paying the add ons if he does well.

Rock the red - his wife might fancy being a beach warmer in Barcelona though.

The one saving grace of this whole farce is that it does seem that the deal which has finally been agreed is in fact a decent compromise between what we wanted and what they wanted, not just a panicked last minute capitulation.

The lower starting fee is what the club apparently wanted, but the add-ons mean Sporting should get the bigger fee they wanted eventually.

I'm probably just still drunk from last night, but I can't help wonder whether Ed maybe isn't quite as incompetent as we thought?
