Manchester United are said to be in hot pursuit of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, a move that would undoubtedly strengthen their midfield.
Man Utd might have many capable central-midfielders like Scott McTominay, Fred, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in their ranks, however, many of these players have either been inconsistent or are about to leave Old Trafford by the next season, thus there is no denying that they need more depth in their midfield.
According to the Sun, who traditionally haven’t been a very reliable source for any kind of transfer news, Lisbon h €65m in debt and so are now open to selling Fernandes as they’ve placed a £65m price-tag on his head.
It’s certainly a somewhat reasonable price-tag and one the Red Devils should take advantage of as they bid to turn their season around.
The only other real option is to play Pogba as an attacking-midfielder once he’s fit so if that happens one can understand how Solskjaer sees his future line-ups.
Fernandes has continued to impress in the Portuguese league so the question is whether he can do the same in the Premier League.
