It’s not news that Premier League giants Manchester United are interested in a move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes during this summer’s transfer window but getting a deal done for him is far from being straightforward according to The Peoples Person.
Manchester United want to sign a new midfielder this summer in case Pogba leaves the club, having already lost the services of Spanish international Ander Herrera at the end of last season.
Former Athletic Bilbao star Herrera has left the club after the end of his contract with the Red Devils.
For Paul Pogba, the Frenchman is attracting the interest of both Juventus and Real Madrid after his recent admission that a new challenge is his target this summer.

Pogba wants to leave the Red Devils for the second time after just three years in his second spell at the Theatre of Dreams.
As established earlier, any deal for Bruno Fernandes is not dependent on Paul Pogba as Manchester United try to get a deal over the line for the player.
Bruno Fernandes has a £31.5m release clause in his contract with Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon who are holding out for £50m.
The player is entitled to the sum of £4.5m if his club rejects the release clause.
His agent has been in the United Kingdom (UK) trying to negotiate a deal for him amidst the interest from other Premier League sides like Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
