  • Bruno Fernandes lifts lid on transfer saga after Man Utd and Spurs interest
  • Bruno Fernandes lifts lid on transfer saga after Man Utd and Spurs interest

    Manchester United and Tottenham were linked with a summer move for Bruno Fernandes - and he has lifted the lid on his transfer saga
    Bruno Fernandes was one of the transfer stories of the summer - and he has now lifted the lid on how close he came to a Sporting Lisbon exit.
    The creative midfielder was linked with Manchester United after his outstanding season in Portugal.
    But it was Tottenham who came closest to securing his signature after a late bid was rejected on the eve of deadline day.
    He ultimately stayed put, where he has since penned a big-money contract extension which looks set to rule out a move in the January transfer window.
    But he confirmed he was interested in joining Tottenham before their bid was turned down.
    Fernandes told Record : "In the summer I thought I could go out. I believed it was a good time to leave due to many factors. I made the best time of my career to date.'
    After the UEFA Nations League, there were already many contacts, especially with Tottenham.
    "It was the team that wanted me the most and was the only one I agreed to talk with, because there were other clubs that didn't interest me or whose project was not up to my expectations.
    "Tottenham fit into everything I wish I had at that moment. It is an appealing championship.
    "Knowing that Tottenham would be willing to pay for me and make every possible effort to take me, leaves a player eager to take that step.
    Regardless, I always kept my word that it was up to Sporting to decide whether or not to leave. Nothing changed my desire to be here and to want to stay here.
    “Sporting nurtured me, gave me a lot. It was a source of great pride and honour to continue representing Sporting.
    “Obviously, the transfer market moves any player, especially when we know which clubs are behind us or want us, but I’ve always tried to stay focused because the image I want to leave at Sporting is that.
    “Until the last day I am here, I will always do my best and continue to do my best.”
    Despite his new deal, Fernandes has refused to rule out a summer move, and the arrival of Jose Mourinho has led to reports of Spurs renewing their interest.
