It was disclosed that the Red Devils have handed him a contract offer that will see him earn £150,000 on a weekly basis at the Theatre of Dreams which is a significant increase on his present wages at Sporting Lisbon.
He will sign a four-and-a-half year contract until 2024 to become the new Manchester United signing.
Sporting Lisbon want £68m for the player, while Manchester United want to pay just £50m for him thus paving the way for Jorge Mendes to do his job as a broker between the two teams.
Bruno Fernandes has eight goals in 15 league games for his club.
