Tottenham Offered Chance to Hijack Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes Move

Manchester United Pressing Accelerator In Talks For Bruno Fernandes Bruno Fernandes' agent is in London to tie up Manchester United transfer

Boubakary Soumare was sent off for Lille against Dijon in front of Manchester United scouts as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyes a deal for the midfielder.

Sporting are said to have rebuffed United's initial offer of a player-plus-cash deal, with Marcos Rojo, Joel Pereira or Angel Gomes going the other way.

Manchester United were the most heavily linked suitors, but a summer move eventually failed to materialise.

That means United are likely to have to meet Sporting's £50m valuation of Fernandes - rising to £65m with add-ons - if they are to sign him this month.

Fernandes enjoyed a stunning campaign in the Portuguese capital last term, scoring 32 goals in all competitions, whilst the midfielder has continued in similar fashion this season with 13 goals so far.

According to the same story, Sporting president Frederico Varandas and the player's agents met with Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward at the club's offices in Mayfair on Friday.

It has been claimed that Manchester United's current offer is around €60m and another €10m in bonuses.

Manchester United were confirmed as being interested in signing the 25-year-old Portugal worldwide by O Jogo editor-in-chief Filipe Dias on the latest episode of the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast.

The Express says talks between all parties are continuing so we should see developments over the coming days but I think Fernandes would be a superb signing for United or Spurs if either club was able to get a deal agreed.

With United five points adrift of the top four ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Norwich, there has been much attention on who the club might try to bring in this month. "I can only say we are working really well to improve the squad and when we find the right player for the right value, we'll pounce on it".

"We do have the backing to do something if the right thing comes up in this window".
