Solskjaer puts ‘enormous pressure’ on Man Utd to complete €70m Bruno Fernandes move

It looks like we are finally seeing movement in the Bruno Fernandes transfer saga.

Portuguese publication A Bola, as translated by Sport Witness, claim that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is urging club officials to get a deal for the Portugal midfielder over the line.

The report states that Sporting Lisbon are demanding €70m for their 24-year-old star, whereas United are currently ready to pay €55m.

Negotiations are said to accelerate in the coming days with both parties apparently keen for a deal for Fernandes to be completed.

United are reportedly facing competition from Spurs for the midfielder, but he is said to prefer a move to Old Trafford.

A Bola claim Fernandes’ agent Miguel Phino has been flying between England Portugal to try and get a deal done and there could be a deal thrashed out by the end of this week.

We have seen nothing concrete from British sources saying negotiations for Fernandes are at an advanced stage, so we will have to wait and see if this is a transfer United want to complete.

Fernandes would be perfect for the Reds next season, providing the link between midfield and attack that United have been missing. The midfielder is excellent from dead-ball situations and has an eye for a pass.

Let’s hope Fernandes can become Solskjaer’s this summer signing following the impending move of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
