Real Madrid set to sign Manchester United and Tottenham target Bruno Fernandes.
Speaking to GQ Portugal, Fernandes said: “As you all know, Tottenham made a lot of proposals for me. Everything was right with me – or practically should be.
“I never made any big demands, my manager was always dealing with the financials.
“It was and is my goal to play in England, Sporting you know that, everyone knows that, and there were conditions for things to be done.”
The Portuguese international was also linked with a move to United all summer, but it failed to materialise.
ESPN are now reporting that Los Blancos will complete a transfer for the midfielder on European deadline day.
