DaveOKCOP.com have managed to get an exclusive interview with Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade. Bruno has worked for the likes of CNN Portugal, UOL Esporte, TVI and more and is known to be a reliable ear on the ground when it comes to breaking transfer news and stories when it comes to Portuguese and Brazilian teams and players.
Bruno broke the news of Firmino’s current contract situation with Liverpool and was one of the journalists who reported on news of Philippe Coutinho’s move from Liverpool to Barcelona in 2018 and even reported on Coutinho’s changing of agents as far back as in 2016. We thought we’d take the opportunity to find out more about Liverpool’s link to Portugal based player Enzo Fernandez from this highly reliable source.
You can read our questions and his answers below.
You broke the news this evening that Manchester United are after overtaking Liverpool in the race to sign Enzo Fernandez?
Manchester United were already interested in Enzo, but were blown away by his performance in the World Cup. They don’t want to risk losing him to another club, so they’re really willing to pay €120 million now.
How serious are Liverpool for Fernandez?
Liverpool were the first club interested in Enzo. The interest arose because of the club’s recent good relationship with Jorge Mendes, especially after the arrival of Darwin Nunez.
Do you think he will leave in the winter window?
Before the World Cup, I didn’t believe Enzo would leave in January. Now, after the World Cup, I won’t be surprised at all. Benfica, however, will only sell in January for €120 million.
What club do you believe he will go too?
I don’t want to risk the name of the club’s future. I’ll base it on my information: right now the only club willing to pay €120 million is Manchester United.
What do you know about Jude Bellingham and Liverpool?
Liverpool want and like Enzo, but the priority is Jude Bellingham.
