Initial source was O Jogo as well, pretty reliable! I reckon he’d be great for 65m, better than rice for 80 🙊
It is usually reliable. TBF I read the original article as I speak Portuguese and it is a story of the €65m debt that needs clearing urgently, but mentions a number of players that might be sold in January to sort out the debt. No mention of Bruno to United specifically. But we can dream :)

Ohhh I see! Thanks Betty for explaining, pretty handy to speak Portuguese! I hope he comes I was shocked when we didn’t sign him in the summer the links were so heavy

Yeah me too, one of two things happened - 1. We were never in for him in the first place or 2. Sporting tried to start a bidding war between us and Spurs and we ducked out, and Spurs weren't prepared to meet the minimum asking price, so it all backfired. I'm hoping it's the second, obviously. The player clearly thought he was leaving for somewhere because he kept bursting into tears and doing farewell laps of honour :LOL:

Yeah that’s more likely. But you know I wouldn’t be surprised if we were never in for him in the first place. It seems Ole is more interested in local talent, Brexit FC

What's the consensus about Bruno out in Portugal? He's still been killing it but are they surprised he wasn't sold or just happy about it?

Completely agree with that. I see Rice as our last option among the Fernandes/Maddison/Rice list. He's good, but I would prefer the other two

80 mil is an insane price for Rice. How long does he have on his contract? He is pretty important in WH's squad, but Im not sure he's that great.
I agree it's ridiculous lol we can get two quality midfielders from abroad for that price. 1) He's important to their team 2) United are coming to buy him so price automatically skyrockets 3) He's English
