According to Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticias, the Red Devils have reached an agreement over personal terms for Sporting Lisbon captain Bruno Fernandes.

The Portugal international has reportedly said "yes" to the move, and has already agreed to a wage of about £99 000 (R1.8 million) a week, which works out to £5 million (R93 million) a season.

It has also been claimed that Fernandes' transfer to United is likely to be finalised and announced this week, and that he will not be part of Sporting's squad when they face Benfica this coming weekend.

The Primeira Liga club is believed to have already lined up Slovenian forward Andraz Sporar to reinforce the team's attack as Fernandes' exit looms.

Having joined Sporting from Sampdoria in 2017, Fernandes has made 134 appearances for the Portuguese club, scoring 63 goals and assisting a further 51 strikes.
