Manchester United are heavily linked with Sporting CP captain Bruno Fernandes and numerous renowned media outlets have covered stories about the player’s potential move to the Red Devils.
Yesterday, a well-known Portuguese source in the form of Jornal de Noticias reported a highly positive news for the Old Trafford Faithful.
JN claimed that the Portuguese international has said ‘Yes’ to Man Utd move and has already agreed terms worth 6 million euros a season (£99,000-a-week) to sign for the 20-time English champions.
The Portuguese outlet also stated that the deal could be closed this week and it is highly likely that the Seleccao attacker will not be able to play for the Lions when they face Benfica on Friday night. Furthermore, it is mentioned that the Primeira Liga club are very close to signing Slovenian forward Andraz Sporar to reinforce the attack after the departure their skipper.
A similar sort of claim has been made by Correio Da Manhã TV, who reported that the 25-year-old star could be flying to England to seal his move to Man Utd in days.
We have already talked about the player’s performance in our previous posts and the world knows that he was the highest goal-scoring CAM in the last campaign and has been in superb form this term as well.
In the current campaign, so far, the former Serie A attacker has directly contributed in 28 goals (15 goals and 13 assists) in just 25 appearances for Sporting CP.
Like all Manchester United supporters, I cannot wait for the club to reinforce the squad and officially announce the capture of Bruno Fernandes.
