Odd's on Fernandes to Liverpool slashed
Don't blame the messenger, we're just reporting on the facts, but the odds on Sporting's Bruno Fernandes moving to Liverpool have been quite hugely slashed.
Prior to last night Man Utd had been the big favourites to sign Fernandes, primarily because nobody else was showing a great interest, but apparently Liverpool 'interfered' with negotiations about 48 hours ago and are now seeing huge movement in that direction.
As of this morning, the odds on the 24 year old Portugal international moving to Anfield were 1/9 with some online bookies, some way ahead of the Manchester club.
But, as the part poopers at the Liverpool Echo always do, they're reporting that the Reds are still highly unlikely to sign any big money players this summer. Especially in a position that Jurgen Klopp feels we're well stocked in, i.e. midfield.
Then again, they also had no idea that we were signing Naby Keita two years ago after disputing that we were even interested in him and had no idea that Fabinho was happening!
