Manchester United move to agree deal for £62m Primeira Liga star

Manchester United are reportedly making progress towards the signing of midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon this summer.

The Portuguese ace has experienced a fantastic season in the colours of Sporting and he ended the campaign with a tally of 29 goals and a further 19 assists across all competitions.

According to A Bola via Daily Post, the Mancunian giants have been in discussions with Sporting regarding the midfielder and they are hoping to secure his services by the end of next week.

The same publication reveals that the player has a £87m release clause but United are confident of landing him for around £62m to boost the creativity within their midfield ranks.

Paul Pogba has largely been the creative force for United in the past year and he ended the previous campaign as their highest scorer with 16 goals across all competitions.

Still, he has been inconsistent on different occasions and that has presented the need for another goalscoring source from the centre of the park and Fernandes appears to fit the club’s requirements.
