Manchester United target Fernandes admits he would like to play in England

Manchester United target and Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes has expressed his desire to play in England. 

United have been chasing for the signature of Bruno with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to rebuild his midfield following the departures of Maroune Fellaini and Ander Herrera. As the Red Devils continue with the pursuit, the club’s preside Frederico Varandas says the Premier League side will have to pay more than £56m to sign Fernandes this summer.

"I don't care about the market, I've talked about this many times,” he told reporters.

"The only thing I can do now is that I need to catch the plane so I don't miss it. Will this be the last match for Sporting? I don't know, it's the coach who decides. I told I'd like to play in England, but I don't care about it right now. If it could be this season? It could be when the club decides, I'm not in charge."

The-24-year-old is contracted until 2023 and Sporting are under no pressure to sell.
