Sporting Lisbon manager uncertain over Bruno Fernandes' future

Sporting Lisbon manager Jorge Silas Fernandes has revealed he does not know if Bruno Fernandes will play for the club again amid interest from Manchester United.

Fernandes played in Sporting's 2-0 defeat against Benfica on Friday night with United pushing for his transfer before the January transfer window slams shut.

According to various reports, personal terms had already been agreed between the Portugal international and United and now it was down to the two clubs to come to an agreement on price.

Speaking in a press conference after the defeat to Benfica, Silas was uncertain about the future of Fernandes, "I really don't know if it's his last game, I hope it's not his last game.

"I think at this moment nobody knows it, Bruno doesn't know either. We will try to have him for some more games but it's not dependent on us. I understand that these kind of players they deserve to play in a good league.

"Nobody has any doubts that the Premier League is the best league in the world and Bruno is one of the best players in the world so he deserves to play in a league like that."
