Sporting CP want Andreas Pereira in Man Utd offer for Bruno Fernandes

Sporting CP want Andreas Pereira in Manchester United's offer for Bruno Fernandes.

The Daily Mail says United have offered various players in order to get the deal for the Portuguese attacking midfielder over the line, and Pereira is the one Sporting are most interested in, according to reports in Portugal.

The two clubs' negotiations are stuttering over their respective valuations of Fernandes, with Sporting now wanting a transfer fee of £64million, paid up front.

United are understood to be offering £50m plus a further £10m in add-ons.

But that would be beefed up by including a player in the deal, with Brazilian midfielder Pereira, who stands to be replaced in the United team by Fernandes, the latest to be offered in a loan deal.
