So according to the mail via a portugese reporter the Fernandes deal is now in doubt because they want 55 million plus bonuses

We are only willing to pay 44 million plus bonuses. how true is anyone's guess

Don't you love the transfer window.

not with are lot in charge.

16 Jan 2020 22:41:19
They'll meet at 50mil + add on's, and that's about right.

It's the summer repeating itself again. How much of the stories are true is anyone's guess but they all set us up to look terrible when he doesn't sign. Be prepared for leaks that the club aren't interested or have moved on to try and lessen the negative press.

Whatever happens I cannot be the only who remembers the comments in the MEN last summer at the end of the transfer window that UTD didn't move for Bruno Fernandes as the feeling from the coaches/ scouts was he gave the ball away a lot in dangerous areas . strange turnaround now.

17 Jan 2020 08:52:41
True. The rest of our players in that position don't give it away lots, they never pass it forward so no worries there.

Shock horror the club tries to negotiate a transfer fee rather than just paying what the selling club ask for.

So many people on here complain that our club repeatedly get taken for a ride and over pay on transfer fees, yet they are also the first to complain when the club actually spends time negotiating a transfer fee.

It's almost like whatever the club does some people will find something to moan about.

17 Jan 2020 09:54:45
Fernandes wants to move. Sporting need the money. Why would you not negotiate down the asking price. These things take a bit of time but I feel confident United will agree the transfer and we can then all focus on the next player linked.

17 Jan 2020 10:08:00
The time to negotiate was Maguire, the overrated cb we overpaid for. The time to negotiate is not now, for the player the team direly needs, and not a single supporter I've asked thinks sportings demands are unreasonable in any way.

17 Jan 2020 10:25:35
Redwhisky well if the supporters you've asked think Sporting's demands aren't unreasonable, then I don't know what our clubs officials are playing at trying to negotiate it down. You really should phone up and complain.

17 Jan 2020 10:52:37
But surely the negotiations with the clubs could have been done in principle long before the window opened? Bruno wants to come to us. The club need the money. This was established ages ago so why not a simple box ticking and signed in the first week of the window. I don't get why we are only starting to negotiate once the window opens.

Shock horror Shappy, the club spends the entire summer trying to low ball Sporting but end up without a number 10 and Fernandes signs a new contract.

January comes around like groundhog day and we're at it again. What is the quote about the definition of insanity again?

It’s almost as if the club don’t learn from mistakes and that they’re creating an aversion to doing business with us.

17 Jan 2020 11:33:56
RA87, fact of the matter is we are lowballing yet again. Amateur at best, 002 is rarely wrong and I think this only proves his opinion further.

17 Jan 2020 15:01:48
I can see the melt down on here if this transfer isn't made. I know it's frustrating for some posters when transfers take time but we are not preview to what goes on. Yes it's true Ed2 gives us impeccable information when it comes to players the club is interested in but he also informs us that he can't give us the timing or blow by blow updates on when transfers are to be completed. So all we can do is continue to wait.

17 Jan 2020 23:29:13
Ed002 has explained the Fernandes situation on numerous occasions.

United want the player.
The player is happy to come.
Sporting have set a price.
United unwilling to match it and keep offering less.

It’s not too complicated to understand. The transfer is being held up since the summer because United, despite all evidence to the contrary, think they can magically get Sporting to accept a lower offer.

Pay up or move onto another target. It’s amateur behaviour and just embarrassing at this stage.
