FIFA is investigating the monetary intricacies of the transfer of Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon.
According to ESPN, 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.
