who will be united 3rd signing? Fernandes agent is flying today to meet United representatives to finalize a move while the player already agreed on terms with the United and signed a contract.
It is understood the 21-year-old had signed a six-year deal with the Red Devils worth £80,000-a-week.
Wan-Bissaka and his entourage arrived at Man United’s training base in two cars on Thursday morning as the deal finally reached towards completion.
Manchester United and Liverpool are both in the mix to sign Fernandes, who hit an impressive 31 goals for Sporting Lisbon last season.
The 24-year-old was also key as Portugal claimed the Nations League trophy, beating Switzerland and Holland on route to the triumph.
Manchester United have long been considered frontrunners in the race to sign the Sporting star, particularly given their need for midfield reinforcements.
Ander Herrera is off to PSG after five years of glittering service at Old Trafford.
However, Liverpool has also emerged as suitors with reports in Portugal claiming they have bid for the Portugal star.
Yet the Manchester Evening News have delved into United’s interested in the midfielder.
And it is claimed they are looking to the Portuguese market because of two players.
United have been left enthused by the performances of Victor Lindelof, who was a shining light amid a difficult campaign last term.
the Sweden international endured a rocky first campaign at the club in 2017/2018, struggling to make an impression on Jose Mourinho.
But he was much better last season, becoming an integral part of the club’s defence under both Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
A second player behind United’s thinking is Diogo Dalot.
He had a mixed first campaign at the club, impressing in attack but often struggling in defence.
But they’re the players that are behind United’s pursuit of Fernandes this transfer window.
