Manchester United have been strongly linked to Portuguese Bruno Fernandes all summer and are reportedly close to signing the Sporting midfielder.
According to Gianlucadimarzio, United are only a minute from closing the deal after wrapping up a deal for Leicester centre-back.
It is claimed that the Red devils have closed a deal for Maguire with the Foxes holding out for £85 million.
And now the Old Trafford chiefs will switch their attention to Fernandes who has his set on a move to Old Trafford.
Sporting Lisbon however want the 24-year-old to play in the Supertaca against Portuguese giants, Benfica on Sunday, a pre-season tournament played between the previous season’s league and cup competition winners.
Thereafter a deal can be agreed between Sporing and United with Bruno thought to have informed his teammates he is headed to the Premier League to pitch his tent with the Red devils.
Bruno Fernandes was pictured crying in a friendly against Valencia after being subbed off. A match which is thought to be his final game in Sporting’s green and white shirt.
The Red devils had their opening bid at £49 million thrown to the bin and laughed off at by Sporting President, Frederico Varandas.
It is claimed nothing short of £70 million will be enough to sign Fernandes who was highly incredible last term netting a total of 31 goals in 50 appearances.
