Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn’t give much away when he was asked about the reported move for highly rated Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes this month.

In his response to the question about a potential Bruno Fernandes transfer via BeIn Sports from one of his recent press conferences, Solskjaer said that he prefers not to speak about players from other clubs before adding that chief executive Ed Woodward and the club owners are prepared to back him in the transfer window and that it would depend on if something big comes up between now and the rest of the window.

Bruno Fernandes is said to be close to a move to Manchester United if reports in various British media outlets are anything to go by.

The 25-year-old Portuguese International’s agent is in London for talks with two Premier League sides interested in him though Manchester United are favourites for him.

North London club Tottenham Hotspur are also in the mix to sign him.

Bruno Fernandes is a goalscoring midfielder that will add a goalscoring threat from midfield.

He has scored eight goals in 15 league games during this 2019/20 Portuguese Super League campaign.

In total, he has 15 goals already this season.
