Twitter reacts as Bruno Fernandes admits Tottenham Hotspur missed an opportunity to sign him

Speaking on Instagram live (h/t Metro), Portuguese sensation Bruno Fernandes snubbed interest from Tottenham Hotspur to complete his dream move to Manchester United.

Things could have turned out very differently had Mauricio Pochettino signed the Portuguese in summer of 2019. Spurs also held extensive talks with Sporting over his signature.

“The first club that was close to signing me was Tottenham”

However, the deal fell through and he ended up staying in Portugal. He is unsure if we went back for him in January, but our indecisiveness was enough for United to make their move.

As admitted by the player, we were the closest to signing him last summer. Sporting Lisbon were holding out for £75million. Having already signed Tanguy Ndombele for a club-record deal, this would have seen us break the milestone for the second time in the same summer.

Unlike Ndombele, Fernandes has transitioned seamlessly to the Premier League. The club let another player slip through their fingers invoking yet another scenario of what could have been.

Twitter was awash with reactions from fans. We take a look at a few of them below.
