Manchester United have been heavily linked with Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes this summer and with less than a week remaining in the transfer window, it will be intriguing to see if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can get the signing done.
If the reports going in the media are anything to go by then the player is expected to secure his move to Man Utd very soon.
According to Nicolo Schira, the Portuguese international will leave the Primeira Liga club and move to Man United after the Portuguese Super Cup aka Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira.
The renowned La Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist has further stated that a contract worth 6 million euros (£5.5million) plus bonuses is ready for Fernandes at Old Trafford.
Sporting CP won both the domestic cup competitions in the last campaign under the captaincy of the 24-year-old attacking midfielder, who directly contributed in 50 goals in all competitions.
As far as the Super Cup is concerned, The Lions will face Portuguese champions Benfica and the game will kick-off in less than 45 minutes. So, if Schira’s claim is to be believed then Fernandes’ move to United should be sealed very soon.
Few days back, Football Insider exclusively revealed that United have agreed a fee of over £60million to hire the services of the former Serie A man.
So, the reports are looking positive for the Red Devils. To get the latest updates on this transfer saga, watch this space.
