Man Utd and Sporting CP haggle over Fernandes fee

Manchester United and Sporting CP are haggling this week over a fee for Bruno Fernandes.

The Daily Mail says a meeting took place between the two clubs at United's offices in London on Friday, and the 25-year-old attacking midfielder is set to move to Old Trafford if a price can be agreed.

Sporting have demanded a transfer fee in the region of £64million while United - who offered significantly less than that before walking away from talks last summer - are now understood to be offering £50m plus £10m in add-ons.

There has been speculation that United could include a player as part of the deal, with Marcos Rojo, Angel Gomes and fourth-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira among the options, but it is expected to be a straight cash deal.

Fernandes has expressed a desire to join United after they brought forward plans to sign him in this transfer window following injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
