Manchester United on Wednesday confirmed reaching an agreement with Portuguese club side, Sporting Lisbon for the transfer of Bruno Fernandes.
The Red Devil taking to their social media pages, announced that they have officially reached an agreement with Sporting, as the deal is subject to personal terms and a medical, with Bruno Fernandes. He is now due to arrive in England ahead of Friday’s deadline.
The announcement was made after months of negotiations and some doubts on both sides as to whether the deal was going to pull through or not, as the player already signified his interest to move to Old Trafford before now, having agreed to personal terms with United.
According to reports, Sporting accepted an improved offer from United, as the Red Devils agreed to pay €55million (£46.5m) upfront for the playmaker and a further €25m (£21m) in bonuses. The majority of add-ons are having agreed performance related but Sporting will earn an additional €5m if United qualify for the Champions League, Metro Uk reported.
No official statement yet from both clubs, as we wait to see the unveiling of the man most United fans have been waiting for for months, having feared they might not be having anyone come over this transfer window.
