Talk to Sport Media Set, Fernandes said: & I don't know anything, I'll take the next few days to understand what's true.
& # 39; We know that newspapers sometimes have to make a show to move and sell the market. I'm calm, I'm at a big club. I don't have to move, I don't try to leave.
& # 39; If the opportunity comes to go to a team that you cannot refuse, I will talk to Sporting. & # 39;
He won his first international top in 2017 and was part of the Portuguese party that left last year's World Cup.
