The priority for Manchester United is the signing of a quality midfielder in the current January transfer window and it seems they have identified Sporting Lisbon skipper Bruno Fernandes as the man to boost their squad in the area of the need.
The signing of a new midfielder has become inevitable for Manchester United after the injuries sustained by two midfielders last month.
French international Paul Pogba and his Scottish counterpart Scott McTominay have made the Manchester United midfield leaner after their recent injuries expected to keep them out until next month.
Ruben Neves isn’t keen about a possible transfer to Old Trafford, reports say. He has been linked with Manchester United amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s desire to strengthen his midfield – but the player has shown no sign of pushing for an exit from wolves.

Pogba has an ankle injury and has already undergone surgery to correct it, while the young McTominay has a knee injury.
Bruno Fernandes is expected to seal his move to Manchester United later this month.
According to experienced Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, Bruno Fernandes will sign a Manchester United contract that runs out in 2025 at the annual salary of £6m.
Manchester United have to pay £65m to sign Bruno Fernandes though his Portuguese club is willing to accept an initial fee of £50m plus £15m in add-ons.
The Red Devils want to involve former Sporting Lisbon player Marcos Rojo in a potential deal for Bruno Fernandes and it would most likely be rejected by the Portuguese club.
