Man United confident of signing Portugal attacker

Providing news to the supporters, Journalist Rui Pedro Braz has reportedly claimed that this travel could be connected to the likely transfer of Bruno Fernandes' to Manchester United.

It's nearly the halfway point of the winter transfer window and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to purchase any players despite the obvious need for investment.

Fernandes has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League for some time and the links resurfaced last week with widespread reports suggesting Man Utd were in formal talks to secure a deal this winter.

Of course there's hope it will go a step beyond a willingness to negotiate and in particular a hope that it will conclude quickly too.

With Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba both out injured, United need to bring in a midfielder if they are to remain in with a chance of qualifying for European competition next season.

However, the news was recently confirmed via thepeoplesperson that Olé Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan traveled to Portugal to watch the Portuguese worldwide, and Sporting's president Frederico Varandas has flown to England today to discuss the transfer with representatives of Manchester United.

However, the Express says that despite Tottenham's rival interest, United believe they are still in pole position to sign Fernandes this month with the Manchester giants able to offer the attacker far superior personal terms.

"Braz was purportedly convinced of the speculation although there were no solid evidences to prove Varandas" move was related with the transfer of Fernandes.

Certain reports had also indicated that Manchester United were willing to sweeten the pot by offering a player on loan. I am going to do what is best for the club, what I think and we feel is right for the club and I will never put myself before the club.

"He played many, many games, I might have to see how we deal with him, but of course he can do so much better. So, it might happen, it might not, it depends on if we find one for the right value, but the backing is there". "The owners, Ed, they know what we're building towards".
