Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes - strongly linked with Manchester United - hints at a summer switch to the Premier League.

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has hinted at a summer switch to the Premier League.

Fernandes is enjoying a remarkable 2018-19 campaign, finding the back of the net on 28 occasions and also contributing 15 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions for his Portuguese club.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a summer move, and the 24-year-old has revealed that he is now ready to make the move to England having previously been a bit cautious.

"Last year, after the termination, I received approaches, mainly from England and also from Spain, but I did not feel prepared to go." Fernandes told Sport TV.

"Not because of difficulty, but for the high number of games in England. My debut season at Sporting was the first time I played so many games, I thought I needed one more with that regularity. Now I feel prepared for this requirement, if I ever have to play in England or a team in Spain."

United are said to have scouted Fernandes in Sporting's league clash with Aves last weekend.
