Bruno Fernandes Sporting CP celebration

Manchester United are constantly linked with Bruno Fernandes and it will be intriguing to see if they can get his signing done.

Yesterday, we covered a report (via numerous media outlets – Sky SportsTVI24) claiming that the the Red Devils are close to signing the Portuguese international.

Transfer: Man Utd consider move to finally sign £50million Frenchman – Face competition

However, last night, The Sun came up with an exclusive story and claimed that Man Utd will officially move with an offer worth £51million next week to lure the Sporting CP captain.

The British outlet have mentioned that the Primeira Liga club want around £60million for their prized asset, who has got a huge clause of £85million in his contract.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder was sensational for the Lions in the last campaign and even this season, his form has been top class.

Last night, the Seleccao star scored two goals against Setubal in a league contest and celebrated by covering his ears (probably suggesting that he does not want to hear the transfer rumors going around in the media).

Manchester United’s last 15 Premier League goals have been scored by just three players, Rashford (7), Martial (5) and Greenwood (3). Therefore, Solskjaer needs more goalscorers in the team and it is not surprising that the Old Trafford club are desperately trying to sign Fernandes this month (The Sun).

The former Sampdoria attacker netted 32 goals last term and has already found the net 15 times this season. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.
