As the transfer of Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United gets closer, the beats of every Manchester United fans get faster. And to their liking, reports suggest that the Portuguese midfielder will be present in the stands to watch the Sunday night thriller between Manchester United and Liverpool.
Despite United and Sporting having held talks, it seems unlikely the transfer will go through until after Sporting’s big derby clash with Benfica on Friday, and he could be in the stands at Anfield two days later, per A Bola (h/t Bicknall).
Man United are closest they could ever get on signing Bruno Fernandes for a fee in principle of £50 million rising to £65 million. His agent Jorge-Medes was also seen in the Old Trafford directors’ box in United’s 1-0 win over Wolves in Wednesday night’s FA Cup third-round replay.
Fernandes has scored 8 goals and notched 7 assists in the Primeira Liga and is expected to join United as a potential replacement of Paul Pogba who is determined/destined to leave Manchester.
Bruno Fernandes this season:
• 15 appearances
• 15 goal involvements (8⚽️ & 7🅰️)
• 5 appearances
• 8 goal involvements (5⚽️ & 3🅰️)
Directly involved in 23 goals in 20 appearances. 🤯 pic.twitter.com/jDpDnUOQDj

Sporting are ready to sell the midfielder and it is said that personal terms have been agreed between the club and Bruno’s agent but United will at least have to wait until Friday’s Primeira Liga derby against biggest rivals Benfica.
