Manchester United have been given hope in their pursuit to sign Bruno Fernandes after the midfielder conceded he will speak to Sporting he receives an offer he can’t resist.
The 24-year-old was one of the club’s star performers this campaign 29 goals and 17 assists, while he also helped the team win the Portuguese Cup.
United have been heavily linked with a transfer for Fernandes and are reportedly set to pay £million in order to sign the Portugal international.
And speaking after helping Portugal win the UEFA Nations League on Sunday, Fernandes said he is not desperate to leave Sporting but claimed he would be open to offers from other teams.
‘I know nothing, I will take the next few days to understand what is true,’ Fernandes told Sport Mediaset.
‘We know that newspapers sometimes have to make a show to move the market and sell.
‘I’m calm, I’m at a big club. I don’t need to move, I’m not trying to leave.
‘If the opportunity comes to go to a team that you can’t refuse, I’ll talk to Sporting.’
And when asked about a possible move to Inter, Fernandes said: ‘I had a great time in Italy, I still watch the Italian championship: both Inter and the others, I follow them all.
‘I do not know if their interest is true, but Inter are a great team, they have history.
‘They have a great coach who has made history with Juventus, he has done well with their national team, but the other teams will strengthen as well.’
