Bruno Fernandes’ potential destinations – ranked

Hansi Flick

Every time the rumours of a potential summer exit from Manchester United for Bruno Fernandes quieten down, they seem to resurface. There’s seemingly no escaping the uncertainty surrounding his future.

Having admitted that he is happy to stay as long as he feels wanted by those in charge, the latest concerning update surrounding Fernandes came with the news that his agent had been talking with a number of top sides, with the Portugal international yet to decide whether to stay or go.

If he is to depart United, here are five potential destinations for Fernandes.

Barcelona are always looking to sign new players on their quest to compete with Real Madrid once again, and they would definitely be interested in a player of Fernandes’ calibre.

The issue here, however, is the fact that Fernandes would cost actual money – something Barcelona still don’t have.

Reports suggest Barca could send players to United in exchange, and while that is obviously feasible, the chances of striking such a deal and keeping everyone happy are incredibly slim.

A known target for clubs in Saudi Arabia, Fernandes may be forced to question whether his time in Europe has come to an end.

With two league titles and three domestic cups to his name, he has certainly enjoyed his time in Europe, but there is clearly a lot left for him to accomplish and his time left at the top of the game – he turns 30 in September – is obviously fading.

Fernandes comes across as an ambitious player who is unlikely to be swayed by the riches on offer in the Middle East, making this one hard to picture.

Right, on to actual genuine options. Let’s start with Inter, who have been credited with an interest in Fernandes from reports in England. He even has a personal history in Italian football, leaving home at 17 to make it as a pro.

The Serie A champions are winning the battle for domestic supremacy and are keen to take that success over to the European stage, and somebody of Fernandes’ quality would obviously help that goal.

Inter aren’t blessed with a huge transfer kitty, however, and Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 setup also doesn’t seem to lend itself to Fernandes’ talents.
