50-Goal Chelsea target announces agreement to make shock Premier League move
Chelsea target Bruno Fernandes revealed he was ready to join Tottenham this summer, but the Premier League side did not meet his club’s asking price.
Fernandes had an amazing season last year for the Portuguese side and created or assisted in over 50-goals, alerting a number of clubs to his ever-growing potential and rumours that he was all set for a big summer move to the Premier League.
Chelsea were interested in a summer deal, but were unable to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire his services as they were facing a transfer ban, meaning that the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs were all interested in a deal.
But after months of intense transfer speculation, Fernandes appears set to stay at Sporting, who wanted as much as £60million for their star player as clubs did not meet his asking price.
‘As you all know, Tottenham made a lot of proposals for me. Everything was right with me – or practically should be,’ Fernandes told GQ Portugal.
‘I never made any big demands, my manager was always dealing with the financials. ‘It was and is my goal to play in England, Sporting you know that, everyone knows that, and there were conditions for things to be done.’
‘But Sporting understood that the value was not enough and I have to respect the decision,’ he continued. ‘Any player has to be motivated to stay in a club like Sporting, a great club that strives for great goals.
PLEASE WATCH VIDEO AND FIND OUT:
‘It would leave Sporting on the day, that my goals were not compatible with those of the club, but they are still. ‘Having a dream of playing in England did not prevent continuity at Sporting.
‘Sporting made the decision not sell me also because they believed in my worth and for believe that the values that were offered were not enough.
‘I have to be flattered that Sporting does not accept values that for them are low and for me it has to be proud of the club to think I’m worth more.’
Fernandes is a very gifted player and his goals, assists and ability are clear for all to see, so it is a massive surprise that he has not signed for a big club and Tottenham have missed out on a class act, especially as they will probably lose Christian Eriksen leave the club in the coming windows.
But him staying put means Chelsea will have their chance to complete a deal next summer, and THEY SHOULD.
