Manchester United are now reportedly ready to try to land Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes after sealing the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
Wan-Bissaka completed his protracted £50m move from Crystal Palace on Saturday after United decided against pulling out of the deal.
That means there is now two in the door at Old Trafford this summer with the signing of Daniel James earlier this month and United are ready to press ahead.
And Portuguese publication Record (via Sport Witness) claims that United have ‘expressed their intention to accelerate’ a deal for Fernandes – who could cost in the region of £65million – now they have Wan-Bissaka finalised.

The report adds that there could be news as early as next week on Fernandes‘ departure from Sporting with his agent, Miguel Pinho, visiting London recently for talks.
And in further news of a boost for United, ESPN say their rivals for Fernandes’ signature – including Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham – have ‘distanced themselves from a move’.
