However, the English club is not stopping with the Portuguese’s signing, as they look forward to strengthen their attacking potential.

In the recent reports, Leicester City asset James Maddison has reportedly portrayed interest in joining the Red Devils. Consequently, the club intends to pin the 23-year-old down as the primary playmaker target in the list of players they’ve shortlisted for the summer transfer window.

As previously mentioned the addition of Fernandes has made significantly less influence on United’s interest in midfielders, as the English side had finalised their list of summer targets last month which included the Leicester star and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish in the playmaking role.
