Manchester United have agreed terms with Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes ahead of a possible move, according to reports.
Portuguese publication Record claimed on Sunday that United have ‘expressed their intention to accelerate’ a deal for Fernandes.
With the report adding that there could be news as early as this week on Fernandes‘ departure from Sporting with his agent, Miguel Pinho, visiting London recently for talks.

There have been reports that say the Premier League side have offered £31million but the Portuguese club are looking for closer to £50million for the midfielder.
United received a further boost late last week when ESPN reported their rivals for Fernandes’ signature – including Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham – have ‘distanced themselves from a move’.
