Manchester United could miss out on Bruno Fernandes this summer as the Old Trafford board has refused to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hence denting the signing of the Portuguese footballer.
Manchester United are not so convinced by his ability to hold down their midfield while Solskjaer believes it is worth paying a hefty price for the midfielder.
Manchester United are of the opinion that paying more than £50m for a player who doesn’t regularly play in the Champions League is a loss.
Although he scored 50 goals in all competitions last season, the Red Devils board believe he does not have enough experience to succeed in the Premier League – He has even been nicknamed the ‘next Frank Lampard’ due to his goalscoring ability.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown willingness to bring in the 24-year-old midfielder and if United board fail to provide the necessary amount to sign him, they would have shown they are not 100 per cent backing their manager.,
There are rumours that the club will not sanction a deal for the 24-year-old unless Pogba leaves, but the 180m pounds asking price for him is way too much for any team to show interest.
As you reckon, Pogba’s agent has also confirmed his player’s desire to leave Old Trafford – Likewise, Pogba himself also expressed his desire for a new challenge.
This could as well encourage the Manchester United board to bring Fernandes to Old Trafford.
Given the form he displayed last season, we think paying £70M for Fernandes is reasonable.
The Red Devils need an attacking midfielder other than Paul Pogba.
Signing Fernandes would free up Pogba to deliver in the central midfield.
