Bruno Fernandes has agreed personal terms with Manchester United ahead of his proposed transfer.
That’s according to James Ducker of the Telegraph, who claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s hopes of signing the Sporting Lisbon midfielder now rest on whether the two clubs can agree a fee for the Sporting Lisbon captain.
The report claims United were hoping to secure a deal at around £50m for the Portugal international, but Sporting have been holding out for a few of around £68m.
And due to apparent financial difficulties, the Primera Liga side may be forced into selling Fernandes for lower than their asking price.
We hope United can pay what is required for Fernandes as he is the exact calibre of player Solskjaer need in his midfield.
The need for creative additions was highlighted again last night in the hard fought FA Cup victory over Wolves.
United were again slow in transition from midfield to attack, and Fernandes could provide the creative solution should he move to Old Trafford this month.
The 25-year-old has scored seven goals and contributed 8 assists in the Portuguese league this season.
