Manchester United target reveals his dream of playing in the Premier League
Manchester United and Manchester City target, Bruno Fernandes has revealed his dream of playing in the English Premier League one day.
Fernandes is likely to cost around £60m this summer, but United are still said to be keen to land the 24-year-old. The Portuguese star looks set to leave Sporting this summer with the goalscoring midfielder admitting a move to England appeals to him. Fernandes has excelled as the Sporting Lisbon captain this summer but in a more advanced midfield role, registering terrific Primeira Liga numbers of 20 goals and 13 assists.
In an interview with Diario de Noticias, Fernandes termed a move to the Premier League as a "dream", "I always said that I was an ambitious player and from a very early age I have a dream of playing in England, where you can live pure football without big controversy, without big cases.
"Now, any of the other leagues, Germany, Spain and Italy are also very good and ambitious. But as I said I’m good at Sporting and now I’m focused on the cup. Then I want to make a good pre-season and if anything comes up I’m available to do what is best for the club."
