Earlier this week, the insinuation in the media, was that Manchester United were struggling to finalise a deal for a midfielder.

Our article, uniteds-hopes-of-signing-portuguese-midfielder-dealt-a-blow implied that Manchester United’s valuation of the Sporting Lisbon midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, didn’t match that of his club.

However, it would appear that the deal is far from collapsing in spectacular fashion.

Today, Sky Sports are reporting that the players’ agent is in the UK trying to thrash out a deal.

The deadlock has come about due to the fact that United are looking to sign Fernandes for £31 million, the escape clause value stipulated in his contract.

However, Sporting Lisbon are adamant that they’ll accept nothing less than £50 million for the attacking midfielder.

Fernandes, last season notched 32 goals in 50 appearances, a very good goals-to-game ratio and would be a great asset to Manchester United.

But will the deal get done?

Our thoughts on this deal remain positive although to get their man United may have to go upwards of £42 million plus a few more million for add-ons, such is the nature of the transfer game these days.

  • We’re Manchester United one of the biggest clubs in the world stop messing around get the deal done

  • Ed Woodward is the problem it seems he’s always trying to save a couple of millions rather than see the players value to the team especially in the situation we are in now we need to be fighting for the EPL title because that’s what the fan wants

    • Well its too early to talk about title challenge… We know we need to build for two or more years to be in a position to challenge for any major trophy.

  • I think Ole should try and offer the £50m for Bruno Fernandez and also agree with Zidane to switch Pogba with Gareth plus £80m.
    Gareth is a good player and finisher who can fit to Man U squad.
    With these two players plus the already signed right back, I think Man U is above average squad in this season.
    In addition, they can also try to sign De ligt, which will make Man U more outstanding.
    Ed Wood should bring out money to sign quality players now he have the opportunity, so as to avoid setback, embarrassment and disappointment.
    We the fans would not be happy if Man U didn’t do the needful now.????????‍♂️????
