3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
Bruno Fernandes has been undoubtedly the best player of Sporting CP since his arrival in 2017 and his numbers in the Portuguese club prove his importance. With 2 goals and 2 assists this Thursday against PSV, Fernandes has been directly involved in 100 goals for Sporting CP in 127 matches.
At Sporting CP since 2017, Bruno Fernandes has been putting historical numbers with the club's shirt. With 32 goals in 53 matches last season, Fernandes broke Lampard's record for most goals scored by a midfielder in a single season and this year, Sporting's number 8 seems on his way to reach a new historical level.
The attacking midfielder has 11 goals and 8 assists in just 18 games played this season and if he continues in this rhythm, he'll most probably set a new season record. The player was involved in 20 of the 30 goals Sporting scored this season!

A lot was discussed in the last summer window of whether Bruno Fernandes would leave Sporting CP. The player was heavily linked to Manchester United and Tottenham advanced with a formal offer in the dying minutes of the transfer window but the player remained in Alvalade. He recently signed a new contract with the Portuguese club that will keep him at the club until 2023, but the 25-year-old has still the ambition to play in the Premier League and that could a reality soon. Mourinho is in charge of Tottenham now and is a confessed admirer of the Portuguese player, while it's expected that Manchester United continues his investment in young talent.
Whether this January or next June, it seems inevitable that Fernandes will leave Sporting CP.
