If the signing goes through, Fernandes is expected to join up with his Manchester United teammates for their final pre-season friendly match against Serie A outfit, AC Milan, on Saturday.
The Red Devils’ fan base will undoubtedly be thrilled with their new signing and will be hoping Ole Gunnar Solskaer can bring in one or two more faces before the transfer window closes on August 8.
Bruno Fernandes will bring not just creativity and assists to the United midfield, but also goals, as the 24-year-old managed to score and assist a combined 33 goals in the 33 Liga NOS games he featured in last season.
