Man United in advanced talks to sign £50m star midfielder

No Manchester United fan would agree caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shouldn’t be handed the job as manager of the prestigious club.

Manchester United staged a remarkable comeback in France knocking out huge favourites Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League to qualify for the semi finals.

Doubts have been hanging over whether the Norwegian was eligible for the role, despite convincing performances against Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham in the Premier League.

For now decisions to make him the club’s manager have been shelved until the end of the season. United are keen on beefing up their side and have reportedly opened talks with Sporting Lisbon to sign midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes has been in top form this season and has not stop attracting interest in his services from top European clubs including Liverpool and Chelsea.

You’d have thought United were last to join the queue for his signature, but reports suggest otherwise. United are currently frontrunner for the Sporting player who has a release clause of £86 million pounds hanging from his neck. But the Sporting is willing to cut a chunk of that sum and could accept a softer fee of 50 million pounds.
