Manchester United deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes reaches ‘advanced stages’, according to Portuguese news outlet Diario de Nolicias

A potential deal that went cold in the summer is now looking more and more likely, as Man United close in on goalscoring midfielder Fernandes.

After being heavily linked with the North West club, the Portugal international signed a lucrative long-term deal with the Sporting Lisbon.

Assistant manager Mike Phelan was out in Portugal with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan went out to personally scout the 25-year-old last week, and according to reports had a meeting with the Sporting president Frederico Varandas.

Portuguese press have stated that two United players could be part of a £55million deal to bring the midfielder to the club, however, the Daily Mail have stated that Marcos Rojo will not be part of the deal.

Although there’s clearly some issues to iron out, a deal to bring Fernandes to United in January is clearly very much on the cards. News Red Devils fans will be desperate for with the injuries to midfield duo Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba.
