Manchester United fans will be hugely disappointed if the club fails to sign Sporting CP skipper Bruno Fernandes in the current winter transfer window.
The Portuguese international has been heavily linked with us this month but time is running out to complete the deal.
According to A Bola, the good news is that the signing is close after Man United advanced and reached a figure of (£54.8million) 65 million euros (55 million euros fixed and 10 million euros in add-ons) to for the Seleccao star.
The renowned Portuguese source have reported that the latest negotiations between the Red Devils and the Lions have been positive and they are getting closer to final understanding.
I’d advise the fans to not get excited until an official confirmation has been made by the clubs. Why? Because on almost daily basis, there have been ups and downs in the this transfer saga, which has dragged on for far too long.
The pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is increasing after yet another defeat against an opposition from the bottom half of the table (Burnley 0-2). If we cannot score at home vs the Clarets then it clearly shows that we need reinforcements in the attack.
Let’s hope we can get the deal done to lure Bruno Fernandes before the closure of the transfer window. Renowned Italian journalist, Tancredi Palmeri, has reported (TMW) that the 25-year-old attacker is absolutely the candidate to become the most expensive transfer of this window.
Back in October, I covered an article suggesting that the Old Trafford club should get rid of the Norwegian boss because managing Man United is too big a job for him.
Since then, things have gone from bad to worse and we are lucky to be fifth in the table and still 6 points behind fourth placed Cheslea, who have also dropped points on regular basis this term.
With Pochettino available, in my view, we should swiftly move to sack Solskjaer and replace him with the talented Argentine manager.
