Bruno Fernandes’ potential transfer from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United could finally be reaching a conclusion, according to reports in Portugal.
It is closer to Sporting’s valuation of the Portugal international but still thought to be a little short of the guaranteed £50.4m they are holding out for.
O Jogo leads with ‘Bruno prepares an imminent goodbye’ with an agreement that Man Utd will pay €55m (£46.4m) up front with another €15m (£12.7m) in add-ons.
There are still some ‘details’ to iron out but they are believed to be relating to the €15m bonus payments, with Sporting keen to make the triggers for the add-ons realistic.
O Jogo adds that Fernandes’ transfer to Man Utd is now ‘imminent’ and that the two clubs are now just ‘smoothing small edges’.
