Bruno Fernandes Reveals He Came Close To Spurs Switch In Summer

Sporting Lisbon captain Bruno Fernandes has confirmed that he came very close to sealing a switch to Tottenham last summer.

Speaking during an interview with Portuguese outlet Record, Fernandes revealed that Spurs 'fit into everything' he had been looking for in his career: 'In the summer I thought I could go out.
