#4 United speed up negotiations for Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United are all set to meet with Bruno Fernandes' agent in London to speed up the transfer of the midfielder. It is understood that the Red Devils had put all their efforts into signing Wan-Bissaka, which has delayed other deals.
The Sporting Lisbon player is a priority for Solskjaer, as he plans to revamp his midfield after the departure of Ander Herrera. The Norwegian believes that Fernandes will be the perfect addition to take United forward next season and is desperate to bring him to Old Trafford.
A central midfielder has become a priority of late and Fernandes, who scored 32 goals and registered 18 assists from Sporting Lisbon last season, was shortlisted by Solskjaer as the man who can bring the thrust and energy in the midfield in his new look team next season.
Tottenham and Liverpool are also reported to be interested, but Fernandes supposedly prefers a move to Old Trafford.
