Bruno Fernandes has been linked to Manchester United for a while now, and it finally seems like real with just two days left for the winter transfer window to hit climax.

The consistent talisman has always been good at scoring as well as creating, as the Mancunians prioritized him over any other midfielders this month. Nevertheless, it’s about time the supporters rejoice, with recent reports claiming the move is almost done.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been searching for creative midfielders ever since his key figures Paul Pogba and Scott Mctominay were sidelined owing to injuries. The Norwegian gaffer believes that the club’s midfield is short on efficient figures, subsequently focusing more on such players in the transfer market.

Sporting’s current financial crisis seems to be driving the deal, as there’s no other reason for them to offload the Portuguese star given the performances he display for the Portuguese club.

Overwhelming the supporters, the Sky Sports Journalist Kaveh Solhekol has posted on Twitter concerning the transfer. The popular figure stated that the transfer’s almost done and the next step is to sign some paperwork by lawyers in Lisbon after which the 25-year-old should complete his medical.

With January edging closer to the end, the deal has been sped up, and his arrival could very well influence the remainder of the current season. Bolstering up his midfield, Solskjaer wishes to get hold of the FA Cup and a Champions League spot this term.
