Manchester United long term target Bruno Fernandes could be hours close to joining the club, according to reports from Portugal.
Man Utd’s pursuit of the 24-year-old seemed to end in the summer when scouts presumedly advised the club against signing the playmaker, or so the reports say.
However, the news was recently confirmed via thepeoplesperson that Olé Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan traveled to Portugal to watch the Portuguese international, and Sporting’s president Frederico Varandas has flown to England today to discuss the transfer with representatives of Manchester United.
Bruno Fernandes has racked up some impressive numbers since his time at Sporting Lisbon and has continued in fine form this season, leaving Manchester United fans furious as to why they failed to secure the asset last summer.
Fans must, however, be wary of getting too excited, after renowned Italian journalist declared Bruno Fernandes deal done.
The red devils have already missed out on Erling Haaland this winter, and another major transfer blow such as this could see the club faithful completely lose faith in both the club’s transfer plans and staff.
Manchester United are also reportedly looking interested in a deal for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek, in a deal likely to be worth somewhere near £50m.
