Bruno Fernandes has reaffirmed his desire to play in the Premier League.

The Sporting Lisbon star has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United for quite some time, but the English outfit is yet to table an official bid for the player.

The Red Devils are said to be preparing an offer in the region of €62 million, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add a creative presence to his midfield.

However, Sporting president Frederico Varandas recently indicated that interested parties will have to cough up a fee that significantly exceeds €62m in order to sign the Portuguese international.

As speculation continues to surround Fernandes, the playmaker joined up with his fellow club teammates on Monday night, in order to catch a flight to New York for their pre-season friendly against Liverpool.

Whilst at the airport, the 24-year-old was asked about his potential summer departure by some Portuguese reporters, to which he replied (via Metro): “The president decides that, not me.

Fernandes further added: “I don’t care about the market, I’ve talked about this many times. The only thing I can do now is that I need to catch the plane so I don’t miss it.

“Will this be the last match for Sporting? I don’t know, it’s the coach who decides. I told you I’d like to play in England, but that’s not what interests me. It may be when the club decides.”
