Manchester United agree on deal to sign Bruno Fernandes
It brings an end to a protracted transfer saga that began last summer (h/t BBC).
United are thin in the midfield after failing to replace Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini. The injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have further highlighted the lack of cover in the position.
Fernandes’ presence would add inventiveness and drive to a United midfield that lacks incisiveness going forward.
The 25-year-old has made 24 appearances for Lisbon this season and has scored 13 goals and 10 assists. (h/t Whoscored)
