Manchester United are in talks with Sporting Lisbon over a deal to sign Bruno Fernandes - but the two clubs remain a long way apart in their valuations.

A Portuguese media firm, Correio da Manha has reported that Fernandes, who is keen on the move, is due to fly to England before the middle of the week and the signing is expected to be completed before the deadline day as Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solsjaer is keen on roping in a playmaker in his squad. "Tomorrow, Manchester United will work to reach agreement with Sporting and close the deal".

Club officials are thought to be optimistic about their chances of signing Fernandes.

The rumours have intensified over the past 24 hours with The Sun citing Italian journalist Nicolo Schira as claiming that Manchester United have now agreed personal terms with Fernandes over a four-and-a-half-year contract worth around £5.1m [€6m] per season.

Midfielder Fernandes, 25, scored twice as Sporting beat Vitoria Setubal 3-1 in the Portuguese top flight on Saturday.

Others highlighted the fact that Ortham, though given an opportunity, declined to comment on behalf of the Warren campaign. I thought a woman could win. "Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by three million votes in 2016".

At the weekend Jorge Silas, Sporting's manager, was asked if Fernandes will be available for Friday's derby with Benfica.

"I understand that they're a huge football club but, in terms of where James Maddison is at this moment in time, I think he's better off staying at Leicester certainly until the end of the season and then weigh things up again then".

As noted by the Daily Mail, Fernandes has already informed Sporting of his desire to leave the club this month, so it is just up to the executives at the club to agree on a deal which suits everyone. They were not impressed with any of United's suggestions, which is what is holding up the deal.

For an attacking midfielder, that is an outstanding return, highlighting why United are so keen to acquire his signature, especially with such a lack of midfield quality now.
