Bruno Fernandes: Man Utd in talks with Sporting Lisbon over midfielder

Manchester United ready to firm up interest in Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes

This is a boost for Liverpool, in my opinion, with Fernandes possessing the ability to make a flying start at United. Let us take a look at his profile.

Fernandes, 25, wants to sign for United and they fast-forwarded plans to sign him in the current window following injuries to midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay. After making his senior debut with Serie B side Novara in 2012, Fernandes spent four seasons in Serie A with Udinese and Sampdoria.

It was in 2017 that the Portuguese star chose to go home and play for Sporting Lisbon. In 2018-19, Fernandes scored 20 goals in 33 appearances. Since 2012, his total goals and assists have been 88 and 69 respectively.

A variety of local newspapers in Portugal have claimed that the odds of the transfer happening are seriously high and that the clubs are in agreement over the talented midfielder.

He nearly left for Everton in the summer and has started one Premier League game this season.

Why does Manchester United need Bruno Fernandes?

It was recently reported that Premier League outfit Manchester United were set to lodge a £65m bid for the attacking midfielder.

According to the Telegraph, the Premier League giants have now held talks with the Sporting hierarchy over a proposed deal for Fernandes, with the player "keen" on the idea of a new challenge in English football.

After scoring an astonishing 17 times in the Bundesliga last season, he has netted only twice in the 2019/20 campaign and assisted only once. As United now portray a defensive midfield strategy, the return of Pogba and McTominay could bring about a great deal in the attacking third of the midfield. Reports suggest that Andreas Pereira could be a part of the deal.

A native of Maia, Fernandes had a brace in his side's 3-1 win over Vitoria Setubal on the weekend.
