Jose Mourinho confirms Bruno Fernandes transfer isn’t on for Tottenham
The Portuguese midfielder was excellent for Sporting Lisbon in the previous season and Spurs were close to landing him.
Fernandes wanted to leave Sporting, however, Mourinho told Sport TV (h/t Mirror) that the midfielder isn’t right for the club:
“We are a different club at this level.”
The manager also spoke about the financial aspect of the deal and wasn’t sure of Spurs making big moves:
“We are not a club that is going to make big transfers in the market, nor is it going towards players who are already developed or at a certain level of expectation, also economically.
“I would definitely say no because Bruno (Fernandes) is a player of a level and value that is not for us.”
Other clubs keen on Fernandes
The 25-year-old recently signed a new deal with the Portugal club but that hasn’t stopped Manchester United.
The report claims that the Red Devils are keen on landing the goal-scoring midfielder.
It will be interesting to see what our plans are for the winter window. We sit six points behind the fourth-placed side in the table, and the right kind of investment can ensure Champions League football next year too.
