Football365 - Ed Woodward is reportedly unsure whether to try and complete a move for Sporting midfielder Fernandes.
Hard to tell if we are actually in on him Sporting are trying to sell him and seems to be a new story every week with this guy.
Never seen him but his stats from last season are mad plenty of football under his belt as well.
As for this story Woodward really shouldn’t be having a say on this sort of stuff as he knows nothing he has to trust his managers judgement until we get more experts on the board.
I personally think 70m seems a very high price with no proven record at European level but trying to make sense of transfer fees now is pointless.
The story is he’s got an agreement with Sporting to go for €35m if they reject offers in excess of that they have to pay him and his agent a fine but Sporting feel they can push the price higher by getting multiple clubs involved in the deal.
