Man United target Bruno Fernandes embarrassed Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet

Sporting CP 2 – Liverpool 2

It ended all-square between Sporting CP and Liverpool.

The Lions took the lead in just the fourth minute through Bruno Fernandes.

However, Liverpool turned the scoreline before the break.

Divock Origi levelled for the Reds, while Gini Wijnaldum scored on the stroke of halftime.

A goal from Wendel in the 54th minute drew Sporting level.

Bruno Fernandes embarrassed Simon Mignolet

The Sporting-Liverpool match will likely be remembered for one specific moment.

A reported target for Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes embarrassed Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet with the opener.

Prompting comparisons between Mignolet and Loris Karius, the Reds goalie failed to stop a straightforward 25-yarder from Fernandes.

The ball slipped through Mognolet’s hands and into the Liverpool goal.

Will Man United sign Bruno Fernandes?

That remains up in the air.

Over in Italy, Gazzetta dello Sport (via the Express) report that Man United have a 7 million pound difference of opinion with Sporting regarding Bruno Fernandes’ valuation.

GdS have claimed that Sporting CP want 62 million pounds for Fernandes, while Man United are only willing to offer 55 million.

Jurgen Klopp & Bruno Fernandes

Some Liverpool fans got excited when Bruno Fernandes and Jurgen Klopp spoke after the match.

After the game, Klopp also spoke about Man United possibly signing Bruno Fernandes:

If he (signs for Man United) then we will face him. He’s obviously a really good player.

They have already a few really good players, so that will probably make them stronger.

It’s not nice, but (Man United’s transfer dealings are) not our cup of tea, to be honest.
