Manchester United have agreement in principle to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon, according to reports.
The earlier part of the window looked exciting for United after they signed Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Since then they have struggled to get their targets and the window will be shut in less than 10 days.
Fernandes has been on the transfer radar of United with conflicting reports on his move. However, the star has set his sight on a move to the Premier league.
And now, according to Portuguese publication Correio de Manha report (via Sport Witness ), all terms have been agreed for the player to join Man United but Sporting are not willing to formalise the deal before Sunday.
Sporting are set to play a Super Cup game against Benfica, which will likely be the last game for the Portuguese midfielder.
United are not the only club linked with a move for the 24, year-old star, Tottenham and Liverpool have also been mentioned as his suitor but he may have already decided on a move to the fortress of Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to sign a midfielder and a centre-back. With reports claiming Paulo Dybala to Man United is almost done, the Red Devils will likely pull the plug on the chase of Fernandes but we wait to see how all of these pans out.
It is widely believed that Man United will expend up to £50-60 million to land Fernandes.
