“I’m led to believe though, that Sporting want €80m for Fernandes, which is €20-25m above united’s valuation.
“He is going to be play tonight and if he does the whole waving the crowd thing and he’s expecting to sign for United, I think he’ll be mistaken.
“As it stands, he’s going to be training with Sporting Lisbon on Monday and not in Manchester. And unless he buys his own ticket, there’s a cat in hell’s chance that he won’t be at Liverpool.”
Fletcher then said that the move was in ‘severe doubt’ and that Sporting would need to lower their huge €80m asking price for United to agree anything.
