Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon have identified a replacement for Bruno Fernandes who has been linked with a move to Premier League outfit Manchester United.

According to experienced Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Sporting Lisbon are on the verge of signing Aleksandar Trajkovski this summer.

He is expected to join Sporting Lisbon from the Italian club, Palermo.

It was revealed that the player will sign a four-year deal with Sporting Lisbon.

Aleksandar Trajkovski would have big shoes to fill if he joins the club.

Bruno Fernandes could join Manchester United this summer with the Red Devils keen to sign the goalscoring machine.

The 24-year-old scored 32 goals and alongside added 18 assists in all competitions for a Sporting Lisbon side that ended the 2018/19 season with a major trophy.

Bruno Fernandes and Sporting Lisbon won the Portuguese Cup after their penalty shootout win over rivals FC Porto.

In the league alone, he scored 20 goals and added 13 assists.

Manchester United have so far been frustrated in their pursuit of the player with Sporting Lisbon holding out for at least £60m.

He has a release clause of £88m in his present contract at the club but Manchester United are not ready to meet the Sporting Lisbon valuation for their target.
