The Mirror claim Man Utd have made an offer of £50m for Fernandes, but that Sporting are holding out for more like £70m.

MUFC fans will hope the two clubs can reach an agreement soon, with the 24-year-old attacker looking absolutely ideal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad’s needs.

Fernandes had a superb season in 2018/19, scoring 28 goals and weighing in with 14 assists in all competitions.
