Tottenham: Fans react to failed Bruno Fernandes bid

Tottenham: Fans react to failed Bruno Fernandes bid

The name ‘Bruno Fernandes’ filled newspaper headlines throughout this summer’s transfer window, but ultimately he remained a Sporting CP player upon the closure of the market on Monday.

The Portugal international was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham over the summer, but a move never materialised for the 24-year-old.

Now, the real reason why Spurs failed in their quest to prize Fernandes away from the José Alvalade Stadium has come to light.

As reported by Metro, the north Londoners allegedly offered Sporting €45m for the midfielder, plus another €20m (roughly £58.2m in total) should the club win either the Premier League or Champions League this season.

The Portuguese titans were unconvinced in Spurs’ ability to win either of those competitions, however, even though Mauricio Pochettino’s men did reach the final of the latter last term, so he rejected the English side’s offer.

On Wednesday, Spurs fan account @Daily_Hotspur tweeted the news, and some of the replies from Tottenham supporters were quite amusing…
