Manchester United have been linked with Bruno Fernandes for a long time and the latest update from Italy is extremely positive.
According to Corriere Dello Sport, the Red Devils are close to signing the Portuguese international from Sporting CP.
The renowned Italian source have claimed that the agreement is based on a fee of 70 million euros (£62.6million) and the attacking midfielder is ready to land for medical visits to secure his move to Man United.
Corriere Dello Sport do not stop there. They state that Fernandes’ move to the Red Devils would not stop the 20-time English champions from pursuing the signing of Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
It is mentioned (CdS) that the Premier League club have been in contact with the leaders of the Italian side, whose president/owner, Lotito, wants 100 million euros for the Serbian international (10 million euros would go to the player’s agent and former Chelsea striker, Mateja Kezman).
Coming back to Bruno Fernandes. We have covered a lot of reports about the Seleccao star this summer and majority of the updates have been gathered from Portuguese outlets.
The strange thing is that the above stated major update about the 24-year-old’s move to Old Trafford is coming from Italy but no Portuguese source have talked about it.
In fact, there is a hugely contrasting claim made by Record. The well-known Portuguese outlet have stated that the English transfer window will close in two weeks and Fernandes is now closer to staying with the Primeira Liga club.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.
