Valencia midfielder Manuel Fernandes has competed a medical ahead of his expected loan move to Turkish outfit Besiktas. I has become quite evident that Fernandes is not in the Valencia coach’s plans. Despite not receiving much playing time in Spain, Fernandes has played fairly regularly for the Portuguese National Team recently. After moves to Inter and Sporting Lisbon did not materialize, Fernandes is now looking to Turkey. Manuel Fernandes broke onto the scene at Portuguese side, Benfica, in the 2004-2005 season, when he cemented a starting place alongside Petit in the center of midfield. Soon after, in 2005, he made his full debut for the Portuguese National Team, aged just 19 years of old. In the same match, he also scored, which further raised his stock. After two relatively successful loan stints in the English Premier League, Fernandes transferred to Valencia, where he has enjoyed varying degrees of success. But now, Fernandes is finalizing a move that will see him join fellow Portuguese international Ricardo Quaresma, and if Turkish football has the same effect for Fernandes as it did for Quaresma, prepare to be amazed.
