Bruno Fernandes pushing Sporting CP to sell him to Man Utd

Bruno Fernandes is pushing Sporting CP to sell him to Manchester United.

United still want to sign Fernandes in the January transfer window, but are refusing to meet Sporting's demands which are in the region of £68million.

Sky Sports says there is a willingness from all parties to get a deal across the line and talks are expected to continue between the two clubs this week.

Reports in Lisbon claim the deal is in the balance while Sky Sports have been told to 'expect anything'.

Sporting manager Silas has said that Fernandes deserves to be playing in the Premier League, and the midfielder is making his feelings known to the club's hierarchy.
