Jose Mourinho seemingly poked fun at the Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United saga after Tottenham beat Norwich City 2-1 in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

There have been conflicting reports over Fernandes‘ proposed move to the Red Devils with some saying the deal is about to be agreed, while others are saying Man Utd and Sporting Lisbon are miles apart in their valuation of the player.

Spurs beat the Canaries thanks to a second-half winner from Son Heung-min and after the match Mourinho asked a journalist whether Fernandes is signing for United.

“How was Lisbon? Lisbon was good? So Bruno Fernandes come to United or no?” Mourinho said. “So you go to Lisbon and he’s not coming? But coming or no?”

Mourinho then turned back to talking about Tottenham‘s first win in five Premier League matches that sees them climb up to sixth in the Premier League table.

“You win two or three matches in a row, so very important for us these three points,” Mourinho added.

“I think when we are playing very well, we have or we should score more goals and kill matches because then when the opponent is in control they create problems for us. You risk losing matches.

“But it was fantastic what happened after the 1-1, which happens in a difficult moment for us where I look to the bench and I don’t have attacking players to change the game the team is a little bit fatigued.”
