Man Utd aiming to complete £62m midfield signing within the next week

Manchester United are hopeful that they can complete a deal to sign Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes by the end of next week, according to reports in Portugal.

The 24-year-old has been one of Sporting’s star players this season as he scored 29 goals and registered 17 assists in 48 appearances.

Fernandes also helped Sporting win the Taca de Portugal as they beat Porto on penalties in the final last week.

Sporting are open to selling Fernandes this summer with the midfielder attracting interest from both United and Manchester City.

But according to A Bola, United are leading the race to sign the Portugal international.

City have made a €55 million (£48.7m) offer for Fernandes and are willing to include players as part of the deal.

But United are ready to submit a bid in the region of €70m (£62m) and hope that they can conclude a deal within the next seven days.

Fernandes has a €100m release clause in his deal with Sporting but neither United or City are willing to meet that fee.
