Jose Mourinho sent a huge message to his former side, Manchester United, over Bruno Fernandes transfer saga. The Portuguese boss spoke about United’s pursuit of Fernandes following Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Norwich City in the Premier League.
He took a dig at the Red Devils after being asked about Fernandes, who has also been heavily linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“So, Bruno Fernandes is coming to United or not? You go to Lisbon for that, and he’s not coming? He’s coming or not?” He said in his post-match interview with Sky Sports via Miguel Delaney.

Fernandes is the subject of transfer speculation even from last summer, with United and Tottenham reportedly following him.
Today, while Tottenham won a hard-fought game against Norwich, United lost against Burnley by a score of 0-2. Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez scored either side of the break to seal a famous victory, their first win at Old Trafford since 1962.
The pressure continues and it’s getting bigger for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has lost more league games (12) than he has won (11) since being made permanent manager of the English giants.
Fernandes is seen as a good option for them and their midfield, but only time will tell if the Portuguese playmaker finally lands in Old Trafford.
