Liverpool favourites to sign £86m-rated star wanted by Man United
Adam Lallana’s future at Anfield is still hanging. It is unclear if the Englishman will be play any major role in Jurgen Klopp’s team next season.
Reds will not beat off any chances to sign a suitable replacement. Bruno Fernandes checks well as a good replacement for Lallana. The Sporting Lisbon star has been earmarked as Lallana’s replacement according to reports.
Sporting who were reluctant to release the youngster as claims floating about had earlier said, that Fernandes is the club’s future, are now keen on releasing their firm grip on the player.
The Portuguese outfit are willing to flog the player for a whopping 86 million pounds.
Fernandes has scored 23 times and registered 13 assists this season for the Portuguese outfit, the more reason they won’t let him leave for a cheap.
But Sporting could cut a chunk from that staggering fee according to sources inside the club.
Reds who simply shivered over that staggering fee will now have a chance to snatch him before rivals Manchester United do.
United is believed to have scheduled a meeting with the player’s camp as they hasten to begin talks to lure him to United in the summer.
AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are reportedly keen on the player too which could spark a terrible bidding war in the summer.
