United reported to have agreed deal for Sporting star
The Reds have already signed Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer but now look to be closing in on their third signing with Fernandes expected to arrive at Old Trafford. Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, who is known for getting most things right, has taken to Twitter to reveal that United a close to landing the Portuguese attacker. 'New contacts today between #ManchesterUnited and #BrunoFernandes's agent,' he said. '#RedDevils have an agreement with them and now want to finalize the deal with #Sporting.' Agreeing a fee with Sporting could be easier said than done though with the Portuguese outfit said to be holding out for a fee in the region of £65million. Liverpool have also been chasing the player, who scored 31 goals last season, but United appear to be in the box seat after he opted for Old Trafford over Anfield.
