Wan-Bissaka done, now time for Man Utd to wrap up Sporting Lisbon ace

Man Utd target Bruno Fernandes
Can Solskjaer lure Bruno Fernandes into his Europa League side despite offers from Spurs and Liverpool?

We are one Man Utd Twitter post away from seeing Wan-Bissaka in a red shirt, next up: Bruno Fernandes.

According to reports, Wan-Bissaka will shortly be announced as a Manchester United player, after Crystal Palace accept a bid in the £50million region.

We have seen the poor negotiation tactics from the Man Utd board as this deal has taken several weeks, if not months, to complete. With Manchester United beginning pre-season in two weeks time, deals must be done quickly to ensure a successful start to the season.

Manchester United still need to bring in a centre-back, a centre-midfielder and a right-winger in order to separate them from clubs battling for the sixth position in the Premier League. Should Pogba and Lukaku part from the club, another central-midfielder and a striker would be necessary also; a total of five further signings, six including Fernandes, that need to be completed as soon as possible.

Should Manchester United successfully establish a confident and consistent defence partnered with ferocious and passionate attacking players. We could see remnants of what made the Red Devils one of the world’s most feared, and revered football teams in world football under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Bruno Fernandes currently plays for Sporting Lisbon, where he achieved 32 goals and 18 assists in his 2018/19 campaign with the Portuguese giants. This 24-year-old attacking-midfielder could transform Manchester United’s inability to pick out their forward man and sink the ball into the back of the net.

Manchester United managers have been made promises by Ed Woodward in the past and have been let down, the most extreme example being with Jose Mourinho. By the start of the 19/20 campaign, we will see if Woodward has finally realised that his approach to the club over the past years, has been a huge betrayal and embarrassment to the kings of English football.

Bruno Fernandes has reportedly caught the eyes of Spurs and Liverpool also, who can offer him one thing that United cannot; Champions League Football.
