Manchester United have reportedly made another bid for Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes as they try to sign him before the present transfer market comes to a close.
This is according to popular transfer news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.
It was disclosed that the Red Devils have made a £55m bid for Bruno Fernandes and it is still unknown whether Sporting Lisbon will accept the new offer from Manchester United.
The Red Devils have made several offers to sign the player who has an asking price of £68m as confirmed by Sporting Lisbon.
Bruno Fernandes was the subject of interest from both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur last summer.

The 25-year-old has been a scoring machine for Sporting Lisbon in the last two seasons including the last campaign which ended with him netting 32 goals in all competitions thereby breaking the record of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard as the highest-scoring midfielder in a single season.
Frank Lampard scored 27 goals for the Blues from midfield during the 2009/10 season.
Manchester United have lacked a goalscoring midfielder this season and Bruno Fernandes can provide that spark for the Red Devils from the middle of the park.
For now, Bruno Fernandes remains a Sporting Lisbon player pending the agreement of the transfer fee with Manchester United.
