Bruno Fernandes 'Close' To Completing Stunning £60m Move To Manchester United
Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes is on the verge of completing a sensational transfer to Manchester United, according to stunning reports.
The 25-year-old Portuguese midfielder was heavily linked with the Red Devils last summer, but a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise.

The Portugal international will reportedly complete his move to Old Trafford after his final appearance for Sporting.
The Portuguese club will be in action against Benfica in today's Primeira Liga derby in Lisbon.
United have splashed out £43m as part of the deal for Fernandes, which would include an additional £17m through various potential add-ons.
