    Bruno Fernandes 'set to complete' deadline day transfer
    It looks like the Bruno Fernandes saga could finally be coming to an end today.

    ESPN report the Portugal international will be confirmed as a Real Madrid player today as Zinedine Zidane looks to add one last signing to his squad on European transfer deadline day.

    If true wow... not good enough for us, but Madrid will sign him...

    Nothing on Marca so i'd be very sceptical. They're all going off the reports in Italy which are probably fake.

    It's not a matter of him being not good enough for us. Considering he had agreed a deal with Spurs and we should have more money than Spurs, it might be something along the lines of:

    - we didn't want him and it was just the PT media using our name
    - he didn't want to come to OT
    - we actually don't have that much money

    What we're sure of:
    - he didn't request a big contract (he agreed a deal with Spurs)
    - he was available
    - he wanted to come to England


    Now it's up to you to take it as you want. I feel we were not in for him. Was it a mistake, yes it was, for sure, but hey, nothing amazes me anymore.

    No need for him when we have JLingz providing the creativity and goalscoring threat from midfield.

    The Spanish media is reporting nothing on this, so i think it’s a classic case of the English language media going off with some agent/club leak. Zidane only wants Pogba it seems and we’re not selling.

    I think that it goes totally against how Ed Woodward operates. Why should Manutd sign a player that:

    1. The other club is happy to sell
    2. The player is not requesting a huge package
    3. Wants to play in England
    4. Would be happy to join

    That is not what a good transfer is, we need to be held to ransom over a player for them to be signing under Ed Woodward.

    Reckon he's got Di Marzio and the boys on commission. They couldn't shut up about him at summer long.

    As I have said previously... Sporting are wanting to cash in with him having a freak year cause they know his stock is high...

    Nobody wants, him or even wanted him.

    Is there any actual proof he agreed a deal with Spurs? Seemed the same shit as him being linked to us. It was obvious all summer we weren't interested in him and it was just his agent and the portuguese press linking him to us. Would be shocked if that wasn't the same thing with Spurs when it looked like they weren't getting Lo Celso.

    I think a few clubs want him.. but not at that inflated price.
    Sporting know they can get a decent fee anytime .. they tried to get more when they thought his stock was high. No one bit.

    If he can perform spectacularly again, someone might just pay what Sporting want .

    We didnt need him anyway, he would have only stopped one of our promising u-17 players of getting senior game time right...

    But they wouldn't sign him if they got Pogba who we have so there's more to it than not being good enough.
    This screams panic buy to me. Madrid seem to be scrambling

    His agent has been linking him to every major club in Europe all summer long.

    We've got James back for this position, who is probably the better player anyway, still he could be a decent squad player.

    Was an agreement with Spurs until Sporting increased the price again. Was publicly stated by the player himself.

    Yeah numerous players have said they turned down offers from clubs that never happened.

    Bruno has been hawked to every club all summer by his Agent himself and Sporting yet none ever seriously considered buying him

    Never seriously wanted by anyone. Hyped up to the max. He’s the sort of player West Ham will be buying for £15m in a couple of years time.

    Is the transfer window finally shut?

    The coverage around him has been absurd.. Cant remember anything like this .. far worse than Gaitan ..

    I hope so. I can't take it anymore.

    On top of that our squad has somehow managed to get worse then last season so it will take a Herculean season similar to the last for us to aspire to get anywhere near third place.

    This will be a longgg season.

    He can go anywhere he wants why should we care?

    He was never on our radar and isnt better than what we already have
