The latest from the Daily Mail is that United have now made a bid for Fernandes and that the 25-year-old has seemingly pushed for his club to let him leave.
It is surely now only a matter of time before this transfer goes through, and Red Devils fans will be delighted if they can get their man.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could definitely do with someone like that in the middle of the park after a difficult first half of the season.
