DONE DEAL: Solskjaer overjoyed as Man Utd seal Bruno Fernandes switch from Sporting CP

Manchester United have finally completed the signing of midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.

United have reportedly paid €55m for the Portugal international, with that total able to rise to €80m if add-ons are met.

Fernandes agreed to personal terms and completed a medical on Thursday. And manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer couldn't be happier with the deal.

"We have been tracking Bruno for many months and everyone here has been tremendously impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team," he said.

"Most importantly he is a terrific human being with a great personality and his leadership qualities are clear for all to see.

"Bruno's goals and assists stats speak for themselves, he will be a fantastic addition to our team and he will help us push on in the second part of the season.

"The winter break is coming at a perfect time for us to integrate Bruno into the squad and for him to get to know his team-mates."
