According to a report from Sky Sports, Manchester United target Bruno Fernandes could still be a Red Devils player by the end of the window – with this news claiming that there is a ‘willingness from all parties’ to get the deal over the line.
Fernandes, who has amassed a prolific 15 goals and 13 assists from midfield for Sporting Lisbon in all competitions this campaign (Transfermarkt), has been at the centre of a transfer saga since before the start of the window over whether he will be joining Manchester United in time for the second portion of their Premier League season (O Jogo).
Now, supporters have adopted a cynical approach when it comes to dealing with updates on Fernandes due to the lack of any official confirmation. The Portuguese ace, in comparison to current United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard, eclipses the Englishman in almost every way statistically – averaging more shots per game (3.4), more key passes (3.6) and more completed dribbles (1.8) in the league, as per WhoScored.com.
As a result, supporters seem desperate for him to complete the move, but have also adopted a cynical approach to any news surrounding the 25-year-old. Find all of their best comments below.

Shocker. Get the deal done as soon as we lose. Deflection tactics 10/10

Ah here we go, right on cue…As predicted, the leeching Glazer & Deadwood Woodwood PR machine kicks into overdrive on the back of a defeat. Expect several rumours to be put out there in the coming days, until…”Ohhh the transfer window has shut and we’ve run out of time” 😏🤷♂️👎
