Man Utd make improved bid for 'angry' Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United have made a new offer for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

A Bola says United have now made a breakthrough in their negotiations after tabling a new offer worth just over £55million.

The Red Devils will pay close to £47m up-front for Fernandes, with an extra £8.5m in potential add-ons depending on his success at Old Trafford.

Sporting had hoped to secure a deal worth £60m for the Portugal international, but now appear willing to meet United in the middle this month.

Fernandes seemingly snubbed the chance to say goodbye to Sporting fans ahead of his move to as he angrily stormed down the tunnel and pushed a TV camera on Tuesday night.

The midfielder was left furious after Sporting's 2-1 defeat by Braga in the semi-finals of the Taca da Liga - the Portuguese League Cup - in what could prove to be his final game for the club.
