Bruno Fernandes transfer has been one of a long-drawn-out transfer deals amidst conflicting reports. There have been several claims by different news outlets regarding the destination of the talented midfielder.
However, fresh update can confirm that Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Sporting Lisbon ace Fernandes.
The news which was first reported by Gazzetta dello Sport and corroborated by Sky Sports reveals that the transfer for the player is coming to fruition.
Manchester United appear to be the frontrunners for the player as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to have requested for his transfer.
The Norwegian wants a quality midfielder to support his existing options of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic. Brazillian midfielder Fred failed to impress last season after his big money move and the departure of Ander Herrera this summer leaves the club short in midfield.
Fernandes is valued at £70 million by Sporting and there have been reports that United are unwilling to pay such huge fee for the player.
Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with the player but it appears that both clubs have balked out of a move due to the high transfer fee involved.
Fernandes is a quality player and would be a good signing for the Old Trafford outfit.
