Man Utd Reach Agreement With Bruno Fernandes

Fernandes moved from Sampdoria to Sporting for £7.2m in 2017 and scored 64 goals in 137 games in all competitions, winning the Portuguese Cup in 2018-19 with Sporting. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “We have been following Bruno for many months and everyone here has been extremely impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team. The most important thing is that he is a great person with a great personality and his leadership qualities are clearly visible to everyone. Bruno`s goals and assists speak for themselves, he will be a fantastic addition to our team and he will help us continue in the second half of the season. The winter break comes at a perfect time to integrate Bruno into the team and meet his teammates. » Are you reading this in our app?

Sporting would receive an additional €10 million from United if Fernandes meets targets considered easy to achieve and an additional €15 million if more difficult targets are met. It goes without saying that the clauses imply that Fernandes wins the Ballon d`Or. Reports in Spain had claimed that Barcelona were in talks with Sporting and had offered a contract until 2025, although they had loaned Fernandes to Valencia until the end of the 2020/21 season. The deal is subject to personal conditions and a medical examination, with Fernandes expected to arrive in England before Friday`s deadline. “Now that we have reached this agreement, I hope we can get the boy`s contract over the line and do the medical care, and then hopefully we can announce it.” Reports on Tuesday indicated that Barcelona had shown interest in a commitment from Fernandes, with the Blaugrana hoping to use him as a makeweight in the pursuit of Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.

Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Sporting Lisbon to sign Portuguese player Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes` commitment could also warm up vice chairman Ed Woodward a bit, with fans loudly expressing in recent weeks the club`s inability to sign players during the January window. Among those add-ons were the 25-year-old who won the Ballon d`Or and the Red Devils who won the Premier League, and while it`s clear they remain in the deal, Sporting were unhappy that even with their inclusion, the total amount would be a little below their rating. Fernandes` move is subject to medical and personal conditions. After weeks of negotiations, Ed Woodward has reached a deal with Sporting director Hugo Viana that United could pay an initial fee of €55 million, plus add-ons, with the deal eventually moving to €80 million. And against the Netherlands, Fernandes refreshed the interest of his suitors with a stunning performance that helped Portugal win the Nations League Cup with just one goal to zero. The player is now expected to go to Old Trafford for a medical examination, but personal conditions are unlikely to cause any problems until the window closes on Friday. . . .
