Manchester United Football Club are closing in on their man, with Bruno Fernandes in line to become the Red Devils’ first signing of the January transfer window.
The Old Trafford club didn’t look like doing any business whatsoever, however, late on, the Fernandes transfer has picked up pace with United and Sporting Lisbon eventually reaching an agreement.
After the game, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about Fernandes and the possibility of the 25-year-old making his debut this weekend.
In the end, the Baby Faced Assassin all-but-confirmed Fernandes could be in line to make his debut on Saturday against Wolves, adding that the midfielder is fit and ready while presuming he will feature…
“Let’s get the contract signed and medical done,” said Solskjaer, per the Evening Standard. “But the boy is fit and ready to play, I would presume. Let’s see if we get it done tomorrow.”
This is a huge lift, and somewhat ironic that Fernandes is likely to make his debut against a Wolves team who are jam-packed with Portuguese players (and their manager, too).
Honestly, at this point, I’m just excited to see him in action. Fernandes’ record out in Portugal is absolutely flawless. Now I know we have to calm our expectations somewhat as matching those figures in the Premier League is a completely different ballgame.
It does feel nice to know that we’ll actually have a forward-thinking midfielder in our squad, though. Hopefully, Fernandes can hit the ground running and show the world just how good he is.
