Manchester United are ready to pounce for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes by making a £49m bid, according to Portuguese media outlet A Bola, as quoted by Metro.
The Red Devils are prepared to make a concrete bid for the 24-year-old playmaker who contributed 20 goals and 13 assists in 33 games in the Portuguese top flight last term.
The report adds that United met with the Portugal international’s agent Miguel Pinho earlier this week to discuss a potential switch to Old Trafford this summer.
The 20-time English champions are now ready to submit a substantial bid thought to be worth around £49m to make the Portuguese star their second signing of the summer.
United have already signed Daniel James from Swansea City in a £15m deal earlier this summer.
Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
