Manchester City have opened talks with Sporting CP for the signing of Bruno Fernandes (24). Txiki Begiristain held a meeting with Sporting's football director Hugo Viana in Manchester last week - asking for the conditions to make the signing. [via @cmjornal]

By making the first official approach, City have now taken the lead from Man United in the race for Fernandes. Sporting are demanding €70m for the sale. And since the club are in need of money, they are not in a strong position to negotiate much. [via @cmjornal]

Correio da Manhã says that despite the midfielder’s €100m release clause, Sporting are demanding €70m for the sale. And since the club are in need of money, they are not in a strong position to negotiate much.

The newspaper says that Viana returned to Lisbon with a bid from Manchester City, but it doesn’t sound like the move is being done now. They say Sporting’s intention is to let the ‘sharks’ battle among themselves so Sporting can benefit from the auction.

Manchester United’s approach for the player is described as ‘shy’, so it looks like Pep Guardiola’s side are the first to open serious talks for a summer transfer.

His stats are absolutely ridiculous (28 goals and 15 assists this season) and he looks very good, but I’ve seen that €35m, €70m and €100m all has been said to be his release clause. At 35m he could probably be a good signing but 70 or 100 sounds a bit too much for a rotation player

Why would he be rotation mate? He would probably be with de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva central and David Silva would be the rotation player?
I can't see Bernardo playing wide next season, we seem to be after attacking players like Felix and Jovic. KDB and Bernardo are surely the first choice in the two number 8 positions, leaving Fernandes and Silva as the back ups.

Brilliant player but unneeded. Foden needs more game time and he's not better than KdB or Bernardo. if Ilkay leaves, KdB/Bernardo/Merlin/Foden should be enough, the likes of Felix Nmecha and Adria Bernabé can fill in for early League Cup and FA Cup games.

Pains me to say it, but Merlin looks like he has lost a step this season

On reflection, I'm not so sure if the info about City interest is genuine. The Correio da Manhã article looks like an attempt to hurry up United, doesn't it? ("Manchester United’s approach for the player is described as ‘shy’")
