Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon have reach an agreement over Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes with the sum of £68m for the Lisbon star to move to England.

Manchester United increased their offer to Sporting for Fernandes twice in the past 24 hours, the second for a deal which could be worth 80m euros (£67.76m).

After weeks of negotiations, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reached an agreement with Sporting’s director Hugo Viana which could see United pay an initial fee of 55m euros (£46.56m) plus add-ons for Fernandes, with the deal eventually rising to 80m euros (£67.76m).

Bruno Fernandes’ medical in Manchester could happen on Wednesday with the midfielder set to fly to the north west, but this process may drag into Thursday, depending on how quickly the paperwork can be signed off.
