Bid accepted: Liverpool close in on BRILLIANT £54million signing in major Man United hijack

Posted by

Liverpool have reportedly made a £54million bid for Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Reds have long been linked with the Portugal international after his tremendous record of 28 goals and 14 assists in the 2018/19 season, and it looks like he may finally be closer to completing a move to Anfield.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham have also all been linked with Fernandes, but it seems Liverpool have always been in the driving seat for the deal.

As explained in a detailed account from a reliable source below (with key points taken from a lengthy thread), it’s claimed Liverpool were set to bid £54m for the 24-year-old yesterday evening, and that that offer would be accepted.

This has now passed and it’s expected that Fernandes himself will now finalise his contract and complete the move after he returns from holiday.

This latest report also follows the player himself hinting to a fan that he’d choose LFC this summer and that he was hopeful of the deal being done.

It remains to be seen precisely how reliable this Twitter user is, but the level of detail in his report suggests he must know something and have contacts with a good understanding of the situation.

It’s also been widely reported that Liverpool will only splash the cash on the right players this summer, and Fernandes looks an ideal fit for Jurgen Klopp’s side, possibly as an upgrade on the disappointing Naby Keita.
