CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Bruno Fernandes: Man Utd close to signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder for initial £47m

I know what you’re thinking. We’ve been hearing that this deal has been agreed-to for nearly a month, with the player seemingly no closer to making the switch to Manchester United.

However, according to Simon Stone and a variety of other Tier 1/2 sources, the deal has finally been agreed!

Further details from BBC below:

Manchester United are close to completing a deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Old Trafford club have been in negotiations with Sporting throughout the transfer window but refused to meet an asking price of 80m euros (£68m).

But a breakthrough in negotiations on Tuesday has left United confident of agreeing a deal for the 25-year-old.

The initial fee will be around 55m euros (£47m) but add-ons could increase the overall cost to 80m euros.

Oh, and this is why United want to sign the highly-rated playmaker in the first place:

About Alex 63 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
