West Ham United’s failure to close out a deal for Bruno Fernandes last summer could have cost the club a potential huge windfall.
West Ham wanted Fernandes last summer when he walked out of Sporting Lisbon after a group of fans attacked players at the club’s training ground.
According to the likes of Sky Sports West Ham made a £20million bid for Fernandes a year ago.
