Bruno Fernandes

Premier League giants Manchester United will make a bid for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes this week according to the player’s agent.

The incoming bid was revealed by popular journalist Duncan Castles via Transfer Window podcast.

According to him, the agent has informed Sporting Lisbon that they should expect a bid from Manchester United for his client.

Bruno Fernandes has been linked with a move to Manchester United for the majority of this summer’s transfer window and a transfer is still a long way from reality due to the high demands from Sporting Lisbon for their player.

The Portuguese international midfielder has a release clause of £88m in his current deal at Sporting Lisbon though recent reports claimed that the club will be more than happy to let him leave for £70m.

The 24-year-old is a top priority for Manchester United in their quest to sign a midfield replacement for Ander Herrera who left the club this summer to join French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Sporting Lisbon had a good season in the last campaign and Bruno Fernandes was at the heart of it.

The club ended the season with the Portuguese Cup title after the penalty shootout win over rivals FC Porto.

Marcos Rojo

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has agreed to leave the club this month and this is subject to approval from the Premier League club.

TNT Sports said that the Argentine international has reached an agreement with Estudiantes in his native Argentina and that Manchester United will have to approve the transfer before the versatile defender can leave the Old Trafford outfit.

Marcus Rojo is a utility player that functions well as a left-back or as a central midfielder and he earns £130,000 on a weekly basis at Old Trafford.

The Argentine international can play as a centre-back, a left-wing-back and a left-back.

Marcos Rojo has made just five appearances for Manchester United this season.

His playing time has been affected by injuries and the good form of those at left-back and central defence.

Brandon Williams is the new kid on the block playing as a left-back after the Academy graduate broke into the first team this season.

Ashley Young was also a left-back option before the player left to join Inter Milan this month.

Luke Shaw has been the first choice recipient of that position for years.

Victor Lindelof is also the preferred centre-back pairing with Harry Maguire ahead of Rojo.

Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish has made a decision on his immediate future at Villa Park amidst the transfer rumors linking him with a move to Manchester United who are presently short of midfield options as a result of the ankle and knee injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay respectively.

According to the Manchester Evening News (MEN) via one of its publications, Jack Grealish has told Manchester United that he wants to see out this season at Aston Villa as the former European champions try to stay in the Premier League after just one season back amongst the big boys.

Jack Grealish and Aston Villa recorded a big win on Tuesday night after they came from a goal down to beat in-form Watford 2-1 courtesy the goals from Douglas Luiz and Tyrone Mings.

Troy Deeney had given Watford a first-half lead before two second-half goals from Villa turned the game on its head including a late winner.

The win moved Aston Villa out of the relegation zone and two points ahead of Bournemouth who occupy the last relegation spot on the league log.

Jack Grealish is not the only midfielder linked with Manchester United since the start of this month.

Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United were granted favor in their quest to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes after his team was knocked out of the Portuguese League Cup by Sporting Braga.

Sporting Lisbon and hosts Sporting Braga met in the first semi-final of the Portuguese League Cup this season and it ended in a 2-1 loss for Bruno Fernandes and his teammates.

A potential move to Manchester United transfer might have been delayed as the player would want to play the final of the competition billed for this weekend.

While Sporting Lisbon were trailing 1-0 in the first half, Bruno produced a quick-thinking freekick for the equalizer from French defender Jeremy Mathieu shortly after he was fouled in the opposition half.

Sporting Lisbon ended that game with three players sent off, while their opponents Sporting Braga had one player sent off in what was a feisty game.

The winner of the second semi-final match between Vitoria Setubal and FC Porto on Wednesday night will face Sporting Braga in the final scheduled for this weekend.

For Bruno Fernandes, a transfer to Manchester United is still far from being completed as Sporting Lisbon and the Red Devils are yet to reach an agreement for his transfer.

Krzysztof Piatek

Manchester United have turned their attention to AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek in the bid to solve their attacking problems following the injury to star player Marcus Rashford.

This is according to the report from The Athletic which revealed that the Red Devils have already made an inquiry over the £30m-rated striker.

Marcus Rashford has scored 19 goals since the start of this season in the colours of Manchester United and the England international has been the talisman and go-to player for the Red Devils this season.

The Manchester United Academy product might miss up to three months after he aggravated the stress fracture in his back during a recent game against Wolves.

The aforementioned publication said that Manchester United want to sign Polish international Piatek on loan for the rest of this season and AC Milan will only sanction a move for the striker if the Red Devils will sign him permanently at the end of the loan deal.

Piatek is also a target for Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur. The striker has scored five goals in 19 appearances for AC Milan this season and he has lost his central striker position at the club to Zlatan Ibrahimovic who returned to the club this month.

Moussa Dembele

Manchester United are reportedly keen to launch an assault on French Ligue 1 giants Lyon for their star striker Moussa Dembele.

This is according to one of the publications from Foot Mercato which stated that Lyon have slammed an asking price of €80m (£68m) on the player.

Moussa Dembele has scored two goals and two assists in his last two games in all competitions.

The Frenchman is the top-scorer at Lyon with 15 goals since the start of this season and he could be the man to replace the goals-coring burden on Marcus Rashford who will spend several weeks on the sidelines as a result of a back injury.

Chelsea were the first club to make a bid for Moussa Dembele in this January window but their €40m bid was turned down by Lyon.

Tottenham Hotspur also tried to sign the Frenchman in a swap deal that would see them take Kenyan international midfielder Victor Wanyama from the North London club.

The North Londoners were turned down by Lyon after they made that swap deal offer.

Manchester United are the latest club to make play for Moussa Dembele who could be the man to take the pressure off the club in terms of goals.

New Real Madrid signing Reinier was also a target for the Premier League duo of Liverpool and Arsenal according to his father Mauro Cavalho.

His father talked about the interest of both Arsenal and Liverpool in a chat with Cadena Ser, a Spanish radio station.

Reinier completed his transfer to Real Madrid from Brazilian Serie A club Flamengo in this winter transfer market for a fee said to be around €30m (£25m).

He will join the Real Madrid Castilla (youth team at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu) upon his return from national team duty next week.

Reinier is in line to represent Brazil at the pre-Olympics tournament for CONMEBOL ahead of Tokyo 2020.

He is not the first Brazilian teenager to join Real Madrid in the last one year as the likes of Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. have also joined the Los Merengues as teenagers.

Arsenal have been very active in the Brazilian transfer market and that’s partly due to club legend Edu who’s the sporting director at the Emirates Stadium.

Edu is a former Arsenal midfielder who also turned out for the Brazilian national team.

He was instrumental to the signing of young forward Gabriel Martinelli who has been in sensational form for the Gunners in his first season with 10 goals in all competitions.
