Bruno Fernandes has signalled his dismay over plans for Manchester United to join the European Super League.

United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool Arsenal and Tottenham are among the 12 clubs who have agreed to join the new league format which will rival Uefa’s Champions League.

The plans have been widely condemned across the football world with Uefa warning players involved could be banned from domestic competition and barred from representing their national teams.

Former United star Ander Herrera was among the first players to speak out against the proposals, with Fernandes now sharing his concern on social media.

Fernandes’ former Sporting CP teammate and fellow Portugal international Daniel Podence wrote an impassioned message on Instagram, liked by Fernandes and thousands others.

‘The Ball. The Song. The Dream. The Zidane volley. Kaka’s solo… Liverpool in Athens… Ole in Barcelona… Cris and Seedorf. There some things we can’t really pay for it,’ the Wolves winger wrote.

Fernandes shared the post on his Instagram Stories, using the applauding emoji and the message: ‘Dreams can’t buy love’.

The Premier League clubs involved will join AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid in the breakaway league.

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will not be joining the breakaway league, according to a statement released by the latter, while Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera became one of the first players to hit out at the proposals on Monday morning.

Porto meanwhile have rejected an invitation to join.
