Is Fernandes Old Trafford bound?
Well, Sporting manager Marcel Keizer is hoping the 24-year-old attacker remains in Portugal but he's unsure whether he'll continue to ply his trade for the club.
"We hope to keep Bruno Fernandes but I don't know at this moment," he said after his side's defeat to Valencia.
It has been claimed that a £63 million agreement has been reached with Sporting for Fernandes.
Reports suggest the player is ready to land in Manchester to undergo a medical before completing a summer transfer.
Fernandes enjoyed a prolific campaign last season. He weighed in with an impressive 31 goals and 17 assists in 50 games from midfield.
Manchester City have also been strongly linked with Fernandes though it appears their cross-town rivals are on the verge of securing his services.
It remains to be seen whether Fernandes will be a replacement for Paul Pogba, who continues to attract interest from Real Madrid.
