Gianluca Di Marzio: Man United one step away from closing Bruno Fernandes deal

The last 24 hours of Gianluca Di Marzio’s reporting on Manchester United is music to the ears of the Old Trafford faithful.

Yesterday, we covered a story from the well respected Italian who claimed that a move for Harry Maguire was all-but done.

Yesterday afternoon, Di Marzio was back at it again with another huge update. This time around, he is claiming that United are just ‘one step away’ from closing a deal for the prolific 24-year-old midfielder, Bruno Fernandes.

Apparently, the negotiations between United and Sporting are in the final stages for the midfielder who was sublime in front of goal last term – scoring 32 times while tacking on 18 assists for his teammates.

No fee is mentioned by Di Marzio, but I’d be surprised if a deal is reached for anything less than the £50-60million mark. We’re talking about a player whose best years should still be ahead of him, while Sampdoria will be due 10% of any transfer fee due to a clause in his contract.

When Paul Pogba is struggling or missing, United desperately lack any creativity whatsoever. Perhaps the fact that the mercurial Frenchman very nearly left kick-started the Reds into action and that’s why they’re seemingly prioritising a move to sign the Portuguese hot-shot Fernandes this summer…
