Manchester United have pushed two transfers through during this summer window, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to mould the squad into one that fits his style.
Amongst the priorities, in my opinion anyway, has to be at least one midfielder. United are yet to replace neither Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera – after the pair both left Old Trafford over the last six months.
Anyway, the latest transfer story in regards to midfielders potentially joining United comes from Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, who took to Twitter to provide us with an update on Bruno Fernandes’ future.
Apparently, United have an ‘agreement’ with the 24-year-old midfielder, which sounds to me like personal terms are already in place for Fernandes should he make the move to Manchester.
Now United are trying to ‘finalise the deal’ with Sporting CP, as the two club’s seemingly look to agree upon a transfer fee.
Fernandes enjoyed a brilliant 2018/19 season, directly contributing to 50 goals for the Portuguese side. However, as is always the case when buying from the Primeira Liga, you should proceed with caution as it can go either way…
Cristiano Ronaldo was a stunning buy, while players like Victor Lindelof and Diogo Dalot have so far failed to set the world alight. In terms of a fee, Schira doesn’t mention a number but personally, I’d be surprised if Fernandes is allowed to leave for anything less than £50million.
