Manchester United could finally be on the brink of signing Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP.
After their attempt to land Fernades fell through last summer, United have held face-to-face talks with Sporting CP over a transfer for the 25-year-old midfielder, according to BBC Sport’s Simon Stone.
The two sides have yet to reach an agreement, but Fernandes – who is expected to cost around £60 million – is eager to join the Premier League club, Stone added.
It’s also understood that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is looking to add midfield reinforcements during the winter signing period, traveled with assistant Mike Phelan to watch Fernandes play in Portugal on Jan. 5.
Fernandes has recorded 15 goals and 13 assists in all competitions this season.
United’s renewed interest in Fernandes comes after transfer target Donny van de Beek ruled out a move away from Ajax during the January transfer window.
