United, Sporting hold talks over Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes is said to be "keen" on a January move to Manchester United, should the two sides manage to agree a deal.

Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata have shown glimpses of top-quality displays from the role every now and then but Fernandes has the chance to cement the position for himself at Manchester United.

It is still possible that a deal can be struck before Sporting are due to play their rivals Benfica in the Lisbon derby on Friday night.

That would therefore prevent the 25-year-old joining United in time for Sunday's match at Liverpool.

A Portuguese daily, O Jogo, however reports that Sporting are asking for United defender Marcos Rojo as a part of the deal, even though the Argentine's huge salary stands in the way.

Skysports reports that United are prepared to let Rojo leave. They've got a few financial difficulties as it is.

With Paul Pogba recovering from a troublesome ankle injury and Scott McTominay also out with a knee ligament injury, Solskjaer needs midfield reinforcements and it appears United have identified Fernandes as a cheaper alternative to the likes of James Maddison and Jack Grealish.

Meanwhile, former England striker Darren Bent says credit must go to United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if a deal for Fernandes is completed.

"I've got no transfer updates, so no", said Solskjaer when asked if he could provide an update on the apparent pursuit of Fernandes.

"Especially if he wants to come to your club, I think that is vital".

We have already talked about the player's performance in our previous posts and the world knows that he was the highest goal-scoring CAM in the last campaign and has been in superb form this term as well.

"But again this might be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proving his worth again, a good manager. I hope it doesn't happen, but we have to start thinking that".
