Manchester United have found it hard to match the new asking price of £68m from Sporting Lisbon if they want to sign their major transfer target in this January window.
There had been suggestions that Manchester United could include a former player of Sporting Lisbon, Marcos Rojo, in the deal that would take Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t have much room to maneuver with his midfield options at the moment due to injuries to key players and the right thing to do is to try and add quality midfielders to his team for the second half of the season.
It could be a case of lightning strikes twice for Bruno Fernandes who also came close to signing for Manchester United last year.
