Bruno Fernandes ‘agrees to join Man Utd as deal to be announced within 24 hrs

Bruno Fernandes has agreed to sign for the Premier League giants for a fee of 55 million euros as well as add-ons

The Portuguese midfielder has been making the transfer headlines for some time. Reports in Portugal confirm today that he’s on the way to sigining with the Manchester United, which he has been heavily linked with.

According to reports, the fee agreed between the clubs is 55 million euros (£46.5 million or US$54.98), although add-ons may be made depending on the objectives being realized. These additional payments could total 25 million euros (£21.1 million or US$25 million), with 10 million euros (£8.4 million or US$10 million) of those suggested as being “simple” to fulfill, while the other 15 million (£12.6 million or US$15 million) based on goal return. When added together, this transfer could be completed to tune of 80 million euros (£67.6 million or US$80.1 million).

Part of the reason why negotiations took so long is because Sporting CP wanted to hold onto Fernandes until the end of the season. Manchester and Fernandes, however, were looking forward to make the transfer now, with the Red Devils desperate to get into the Champion Leagues places.

With 13 goals and 10 assists this season in Portugal, Manchester United’s fans will be hoping that Fernandes’ addition can put an extra dimension to the club’s play. BBC Sport reported that signatures and official announcements are expected within the next 24 hours.
