Manchester United closing on Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes

MANCHESTER United were last night reported to be in talks with Sporting Lisbon about a move for Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The 25-year-old would provide Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with increased options in midfield with Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay currently sidelined by injury and United having failed to adequately replace Ander Herrera, who left last summer.

Solskjaer is thought to have watched Fernandes last week and Sporting are reportedly asking for £60million for their captain, who has scored 13 goals in 22 games this season.
