Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has reportedly informed his club that he requires to be allowed a transfer to Manchester United.
The Portugal international playmaker has been strongly linked with Manchester United this January as the Daily Mirror have recently claimed a bid is in the works, and it may be that things have moved along fast.
The latest from the Daily Mail is that the Red Devils have now made a bid for Bruno Fernandes and that the 25-year-old star has seemingly forced for his club to let him leave.
It is certainly now only a matter of time before this transfer goes through, and Manchester United fans will be delighted if they can get their man.
Bruno Fernandes has shone with Sporting Lisbon, looking an incredible talent with his goals and assists record from midfield.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could definitely do with someone like that in the middle of the park after a hard first half of the season.
Paul Pogba has been out injured, and the remaining players in that area of the pitch have not really provided Manchester United’s forwards with enough opportunities.
Bruno Fernandes can bring more creativity to the side and also contribute more goals himself from midfield to take the pressure off Marcus Rashford and co.
