Bruno Fernandes annoyed with Man Utd over botched transfer

United have so-far refused to cough up Sporting’s £68million valuation for the midfielder as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately looks for reinforcements.

Fernandes is United’s prime target for the winter window and the player is keen to seal a move to Old Trafford.

But United’s failed pursuit since the term of the new year has left him frustrated, report The Times.

Fernandes had expected last Friday’s Lisbon derby against Benfica to be his last in a Sporting shirt, but he was back in the side for Tuesday’s trip to Braga after negotiations between the two clubs stalled.

The 25-year-old was visibly annoyed as he stormed off the pitch at full-time of the 2-1 defeat, shoving a camera as he made his way down the tunnel.

Reports in Portugal say Sporting are fully blaming United for the move not yet coming to fruition, with the Old Trafford hierarchy not believing Fernandes is worth the price Sporting are demanding.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to add some creativity to his midfield in the continued absence of Paul Pogba.

The Norwegian is also on the lookout for a striker given the injury suffered by top scorer Marcus Rashford.

United’s need to dip into the transfer market has been heightened by back-to-back 2-0 defeats at arch rivals and and runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool and at home to struggling Burnley .United have so-far refused to cough up Sporting’s £68million valuation for the midfielder as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately looks for reinforcements.
