Liga NOS side Sporting CP may be forced to part ways with their biggest star, Portuguese attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes, at the conclusion of the season, a Portuguese tabloid daily newspaper Correio da Manha reports.
Currently dealing with financial problems, the Lions could take advantage of the star’s form and make some huge cash with the reported Chelsea target, in spite of his importance at the club, being the leader of the pitch.
Bruno is currently protected by a €100 million release (buy-out/exit) clause, and the fee is being used by the Lisbon-based outfit as a reference for transfer talks.
Correio da Manha names two sides who have shown interest for the midfielder so far: Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Liverpool and Serie A heavyweights AC Milan. However, both sides take those figures as overvalued.
