The transfer of Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United has been on the card for the last few transfer windows. Now that’s a done deal! Manchester United have officially announced that they have reached an agreement with Sporting CP for the transfer of Bruno Fernandes.
Manchester United released a statement: “Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Sporting Clube de Portugal for the transfer of Bruno Fernandes.
The deal is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms. A further announcement will be made in due course.”
Manchester United have shelled out a big sum of money for the midfielder. They will initially pay €55m and another €25m in bonuses for the service of the Portugal international.
Sporting CP have also confirmed the transfer from their end as well. They have released the financial figures: €55m guaranteed fee, €5m for a set number of appearances, €5m for Champions League qualification, €15m for individual achievements and 10% from any future sale.
Long-term injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have depleted United’s midfield as they aim to get into the top four. So the signing of Fernandes will definitely bolster their chances of gaining a Champions League spot.
Bruno Fernandes is currently in red hot form. He has scored 8 goals and assisted another 7 goals in 17 Primeira Liga appearances. He will bring a lot of quality and a goal-scoring threat to the United midfield.
He is expected to undergo medical in Manchester on Wednesday and can be unveiled as a Manchester United player on Thursday after reaching an agreement on personal terms, which is just a mere formality now.
