Well the "rumours" have now been picked up by The Guardian and BBC as actual talks having been held between the clubs about a possible transfer.

There's still time for us (Woodworm) to fuck it up mind.

Aye, they seem a lot more concrete than in the summer. Things like terms agreed, Fernandes publicly coming out saying he wants to go to United and Sporting also making comments about needing to replace him etc.

Not sure if we should expect miracles if/when he arrives but he has been playing well so far this season....15 games, 7/8 goals and 7/8 assists I think.

I'm excited about it I must admit, but still smacks of incompetent transfer dealings by the club again imo - if we were genuinely interested in the summer, why wait until he'd signed a new contract before making a serious play for him now?

I think it's because the squad are fucked with injuries which has forced their hand, and the owners/Penfold need to make a signing to placate the fans - if Ole heard the chants on Saturday you can be sure those skip-rat weasels heard them too!!

Also, added bonus if Rojo is going the other way (as the chat suggests)!

Yeah if he’s a good signing now he would have been a better signing last summer. He looks like the type of player we need, but it’s hard to tell how good he actually is given the different league.

Yeh, players from the weaker leagues always seem to struggle unless they are genuinely something special. We haven't done particularly well with players from the German, French and Portugese leagues (apart from CR7) but Fernandes does look mint on the ball, so at least he will have the technical ability.

Reckon in the summer the club thought that with Gomes and Chong showing promise and with Lingard finally becoming a man, that we wouldn't need him. I don't actually know tbh but we are a reactive club when it comes to signings. As long as Woodward and the Glazers are at the club, I don't see any planning involved, just fixes.

That’s a good summary of the situation.

Even if United are in for Fernandes fuck all will happen because they will dither as usual and be tight fisted and Woodward will fuck it up and Fernandes will go elsewhere.
