“I wouldn’t swap him for any player” was Jose Mourinho’s response when asked whether he’d swap Giovani Lo Celso for Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Spurs were linked with the Portuguese midfielder last summer – and although he ended up staying with Sporting Lisbon, Fernandes made his “dream” move to Old Trafford in January.
Fernandes has flourished for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men – scoring five goals, whilst adding three assists in eight Premier League matches since making the switch England – but Mourinho made his thoughts clear when questioned whether he’d swap the two.
