Various reports in Portugal and England have confirmed that Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon have reached an agreement regarding the main terms of the deal that will see Bruno Fernandes join the Red Devils during the January transfer window.

The Portugal international is being touted as Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top transfer target this winter, as it’s a common notion now that James Maddison and Jack Grealish will be staying at their respective clubs Leicester and Aston Villa.

Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have been ruled out due to injury for the most of the season and almost every other Man Utd midfielder has been out of form. Hence, Manchester United have been left with no other choice but to go for the Portuguese playmaker Fernandes, who has scored 15 goals across all competitions for Sporting Lisbon this season.

Grealish and Maddison were originally the preferred playmaker targets for the Old Trafford outfit, however, both players will be staying at Leicester and Aston Villa until the summer.

United are understood to be lining up a £65million bid in order to bring Fernandes to the Premier League.

And Portuguese newspaper Record say that the main terms of any transfer deal have already been negotiated between the two sides.

That may mean that United have agreed to pay Sporting what they want. And there’s confidence growing inside Old Trafford that the 25-year-old will sign on the dotted line before the end of the month.

    I have utmost and sincere respect for what you are doing. But please be more responsible in the minute details of your writing.

    “almost every other Man Utd midfielder has been out of form” this sentence is too general yet very condemning and it is very wrong. There are a few players who have been doing very well, like Rashford, Martial, James, AWB, Williams, and Fred.

    Please don’t make it sound like everybody is doing so bad.

      Well, my apologies but the intention wasn’t to make everyone look bad. However, Rashford, Martial, Mason are all forwards. Fred has been extremely inconsistent. We will have to admit there is a crisis in the midfield and OSG will have to sort it out.
