FIFA is investigating the monetary intricacies of the transfer of Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon.
, the request to bring proceedings was sent by the management of Sampdoria, a club that Fernandes was a member of before he went to Sporting.
More specifically, the Italian first-rounder is demanding an investigation as they, according to their interpretation of the ordinance, are entitled to 10% percent of the transfer Fernandes made when he signed for the Red Devils.
Samdoria sold Fernandes to Sporting for £ 7.5m after just one season spent on Luigi Fereris. Later, in January the Portuguese went to Manchester for a £ 47m transfer, which can be increased by an additional £ 20m.
