Since the beginning of the season, and more frequently in recent weeks, United have been linked with a move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Portugal star, who scored 32 goals in 53 appearances from midfield last season, was reportedly closing in on a move to Old Trafford, but the deal has reportedly been held up by Sporting's demands for the player.

The Red Devils' neighbours have now seemingly entered the race to sign the 25-year-old, and are said to be willing to match his £86 million (R1.6 billion) asking price. 

That is according to Portuguese publication Correio da Manha, as translated by Sport Witness, who claimed that City are also willing to agree terms now and allow the player to remain at Sporting for the remainder of the season.
