INSIDER: Man Utd Fernandes deal at risk of COLLAPSE

Manchester United's deal for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes is now at risk of COLLAPSE.

Portuguese TVI 24 journalist Rui Pedro Braz is reporting Sporting are demanding a £55m up front fee for the midfielder.

But United are willing only to pay £42m - and the £13m disparity is reportedly putting the protracted move "at risk".

Braz says Sporting are insisting on a guaranteed fee of £55m plus bonuses.

He claims United - who were reportedly looking to have Fernandes watch United against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday - are unwilling to meet that cost.

Braz goes onto add that United have offered 25-year-old Fernandes massive bonuses.

But Sporting feel these are unrealistic, especially as they are believed to include him getting a bonus for winning the Ballon d'Or.

Another two bonuses are for winning the Premier League as well as the Champions League.
