Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United are still a long way off an agreement for the transfer fee that would take Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford according to the widespread media reports in the United Kingdom (UK).
It was revealed that the transfer is being held up by the fee agreement as Manchester United have agreed a five-year deal with the Sporting Lisbon midfielder and that he will earn £100,000 on a weekly basis at the Theatre of Dreams according to the publication from The Sun.
Sporting Lisbon want £64m upfront for Bruno Fernandes, while Manchester United want to sign him for an initial fee of £50m plus £10m in add-ons.

Manchester United have also failed to convince Sporting Lisbon to take their former player Marcos Rojo as part of the Bruno Fernandes transfer.
Rojo earns £180,000 on a weekly basis at Old Trafford. He moved to Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2014 shortly after his impressive outings for Argentina at the FIFA Club World Cup in Brazil.
Manchester United also tried to include Angel Gomes or fourth-choice shot stopper Joel Pereira in the deal but Sporting Lisbon only wants a straight cash transfer.
Bruno Fernandes has scored 15 goals already this season for Sporting Lisbon.
