The proposed transfer of Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United is in serious doubt according to Darren Fletcher.
Fletcher said on BBC Live that the Portuguese international might stay at Sporting Lisbon beyond this month after his club made a new demand for the player to join Manchester United.
According to him, Sporting Lisbon want more money for Bruno Fernandes for the £60m transfer to go through.
Manchester United want to pay a lesser fee of around £50m to £55m for the player who previously played for both Udinese and Sampdoria in the Italian Serie A.

He joined Sporting Lisbon from Sampdoria FC of Italy around two years ago.
Tottenham Hotspur had a £45m bid turned down for Bruno Fernandes last summer which saw him linked with the Red Devils as well.
Manchester United will have to manage the midfield options at their disposal if they are unable to agree a transfer fee for Bruno Fernandes though young Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare is also a serious target for the Old Trafford side.
Chelsea and Manchester United are the only two clubs in the race for Boubakary Soumare after the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Valencia dropped out of the race for him.
