Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed that Manchester United will become stronger if they finally sign Sporting CP attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes.
He also admitted that it would not be nice if the 24-year-old signs for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, adding that the Portuguese international is really a good player.
Klopp stated this following Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sporting in a pre-season friendly at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday.
Solkjaer’s side wants to bring in Fernandes in this summer’s transfer window as a replacement for Rumelu Lukaku who is heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan.
Speaking after Liverpool’s draw with Sporting, Klopp was quoted by Goal as telling reporters at post-match: “If Fernandes signs for Man Utd 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 Utd’s transfer dealings are] not our cup of tea, to be honest.”
Fernandes scored 32 goals in all competitions last season for Sporting.
The former Serie A star helped Sporting CP win two cup titles and he directly contributed in 50 goals in all competitions in the last campaign.L
