Following it, according to a report by the Manchester Evening News, Fernandes met his agent to discuss his future amidst interest from Manchester United.

The pair moved to United for a combined £65m this summer and will no doubt be hoping they are joined at Old Trafford by Fernandes before the transfer window closes on August 8. The Portuguese worldwide is calm over the Old Trafford switch and expects a swift resolution to seal his move away from Sporting Lisbon.

The departure of Ander Herrera, and speculations of Paul Pogba leaving the Old Trafford this summer has compelled Manchester United to pursue the Portuguese International to fill the void.

For Bruno Fernandes, the Portuguese global had the season of his life after he broke the goalscoring record for a midfielder.

The Portuguese global would be an exciting addition to Solskjaer's squad if he does end up moving to Old Trafford as he contributed a staggering 32 goals and 18 assists in all competitions last season.

Confident of donning the red of Manchester United.

One pundit claims Manchester United's pursuit of players like Bruno Fernandes shows the club are behind the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid in the transfer market. The latest faint noise is that representatives of Bruno Fernandes were spotted near the city recently.

This potential offer falls short of Sporting Lisbon's €70 million valuation of Fernandes, meaning Manchester United might have to table a bid worth a higher amount to land their man.

However, it now seems as if the Red Devils are pursuing an alternative as they look to boost their central midfield options ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

But a deal still needs to be struck with Sporting as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen in the middle.
