Porto midfielder Fernando might be enjoying his final season at the Estádio do Dragão after his agent, Antonio Araujo, revealed that 26-year-old's ultimate goal is to play in the Premier League.
Chelsea, Arsenal, City, and United tipped as possible destinations for Porto's Fernando
"God willing, Fernando will play in the Premier League," Araujo told the Daily Star.
Manchester City were considered as frontrunners to secure the services of the Brazilian after almost sealing a deal in January, but with Araujo refusing to confirm the Brazilian's destination, the rumour mill suggests that Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United, are also in the running of snatching the playmaker.
"Manchester City were a strong candidate, but were not alone in the race," he added.
Meanwhile, he also disclosed that French side Monaco were also contemplating on acquiring Fernando.
"He had a good contract from Monaco, but Porto found out that proposal was inconsistent with his claims," he intimated.
