Bruno Fernandes has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and is set to become the club’s third signing of the summer transfer window.
That is according to the Mirror who report that the details were agreed on Monday between United officials and representatives of the player, clearing the way for the deal to be finalised, although no fee has yet been agreed.
24-year old Fernandes is currently captain of Sporting Lisbon and plays for the Portuguese national team. He began his playing career in Italy with Novara, Udinese and Sampdoria, before making the switch to Sporting in 2017 on a five year deal. He has since gone on to make 106 appearances for them, scoring 47 times. He has also been capped 13 times by Portugal.
He has previously been linked with both Liverpool and Spurs this summer, but both of those clubs have since dropped their interest, leaving the field free for United to seal a deal.
