The agent of Bruno Fernandes is due in England on Wednesday night to try and push through a deal with Manchester United after they agreed personal terms with the Sporting Lisbon star, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already signed winger Daniel James and right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer but the United boss is hoping to further strengthen his squad following a disappointing campaign that saw them finish outside the top four.

A creative midfielder is on the agenda and Fernandes has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford with Sky Sports confirming that Man Utd are hoping to sign the Portuguese international this summer.

It looks like a deal has now moved a huge step closer to becoming a reality as Gazetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira claims United have now agreed personal terms with Fernandes over a a contract worth around £5.4m per season [€6m] plus bonuses.

Schira says Fernandes’ agent, Miguel Pinho, is now due in England tonight to hold face-to-face talks with Man Utd chiefs with the aim of formalising a strategy to put their offer forward to Sporting Lisbon.

The agent said on Twitter:

All confirmed: tonight Miguel Pinho (#BrunoFernandes’agent) will be in England to discuss the Bruno’s deal to #ManchesterUnited. They have a telephone agreement by €6M a year plus bonuses. Now have to decide the strategy and offer for Sporting.

New customer offer. Place 5 x €/£10 or more bets to receive €/£20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. Full T&Cs Apply. 18+|Gamble Aware.

The Mirror claims Man Utd had hoped to sign the 24-year-old for around £31m but Sporting are holding out for an offer closer to £53m so the two clubs appear far apart with their valuations.

We’ll have to wait and see how things progress over the coming days but Fernandes would be an exciting signing if United can pull it off as he’s become one of the most dangerous attacking midfielders in Europe.

The Portuguese international contributed an impressive 32 goals and 18 assists in all competitions last season to help guide Sporting to two domestic trophies while he also helped his country win the Nations League this summer.

I think Fernandes would be an excellent piece of business for the Manchester giants but fans will be concerned that his arrival could pave the way for Paul Pogba to leave the club after he went public with his desire to seek a new challenge.

    When will manchester United get rid of Jones, Smalling, Darmian and Ashley Old? The good ones are allowed to go while the Flops are retained! Rashford £300k-per-week, for what exactly? To play more rubbish next season? I don’t know why we (Man.Utd) like to waste money. These boys that lacks discipline and commitment be earning this much while the likes of Milner and co will be given less. Life is so so unfair!

      That is why we are not performing.
      We struggled to come sixth last season as a result of poor performance from virtually all the players. Look at Man U giving Rashford that kind of money, even when its obvious he performed woefully last season.
      Well, let’s see if the board buy seasoned forwards, midfielders and center backs.

    This is the news I want to hear, as not signing him will not be good for our quest to challenge for the EPL and Europa cups.
    I should have been happier if we had brought Ndombele to Old Trafford to play together with Bruno Fernandes.
    We need to buy another strong defensive midfielder as Bruno is more of attacking midfielder. The next place of concern is the forward and the center back, we need experienced players in both departments as we should be in the top three in EPL and win the Europa cup come next season. Anything less would be regarded as poor performance.

      Rashford is not on £300K a week, that’s paper talk. Try closer to £200K. Which is still a lot don’t get me wrong, but don’t listen to the over flated costs.

    We can’t even get better next season even if we are trying to make a best team for the feature, how Rashford gets more money than Milner?? Not even talented boy?
