According to Gazzetta dello Sport, as translated by the Daily Mirror, Fernandes’ agent is due in Manchester on Wednesday night for key talks to try and finalise a deal.

The Mirror also translate a report from Portuguese source Correio da Manha stating that Fernandes himself is keen on the move and thinks it will happen.

One issue remaining is the 24-year-old’s transfer fee, but the Mirror claim a compromise could be struck between the two clubs at around £53million.

Bruno Fernandes has looked world class for Sporting Lisbon.

That could end up being a bargain for a player who contributed 28 goals and 14 assists from midfield last season.

With the Times among the sources linking Paul Pogba with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, Fernandes could end up being an ideal replacement.
