  • United have offered a fee which has been agreed with Lisbon.

  • It is 68 million pounds.

  • United increased their offer to sporting for Fernandez twice in the last 24 hours, the second part of the deal, which could rise to 80 million euros, which which would be around £67 million.

  • So their initial offer rising is a gap between £20 million to quite significant add ons for this one.

  • Now this is what you have to pay attention because the add ons are quite significant and this is where it gets a little bit complicated.

  • After weeks of negotiations, United executive vice chairman Edward Wood has reached an agreement with the sporting director Hugo Viana, which could see United play an initial fear 55 million euros around £46 million With Adam's.

  • Sporting would receive a further 10 million euros from United.

  • Yeah, I mean, you mentioned it being a saga.

  • You mentioned that lead twist because James, it seems united might have a little bit of competition.

  • I mean, it seems that way, it seems, Shall we say that way are Say it like that now We believe that United put the bids in after there was interest reported that Barcelona wanted to sign the midfielder.

  • Now they were willing to pay more than Manchester United.

  • But what they wanted to do was sous embroidered Fernandez to Valencia on loan for the rest of season in order to make way to sign Valencia forward Rodrigo of Obviously of cover for Luis Suarez is currently out pretty much for the season.

  • So all I'll say is look a Bruna Fernandez, Agent George Mendez.

  • Genius Georges.

  • I'd like to call him.

  • His top client is Christiano Ronaldo.

  • He is a super agent.

  • And the reason why is a super agent because he gets deals done.

  • How did you get it done well, I would hazard a guess.

  • Someone like to assume that's just my personal opinion.

  • But maybe dangled the carrot of Barcelona in there.

  • And all of a sudden man United came running with more money on getting the deal done.

  • I think it's very, very smart from Britt Affinities, Agent.

  • Yeah, and we actually have something on Instagram.

  • This was his friend as a singer.

  • Carolina just land is posted this on instagram in a lift.

  • But have a look in the middle there.

  • Little aeroplane flying in an airport lift perhaps.

  • Just get this one done is what they've been saying.

  • I wanna watch Bruno Fernandez box.

  • I mean, how important is it that they do Just get this one over the line and do it?

  • No, absolutely.

  • I mean, you know, only going to sell the shop, playing everything down in terms of transfers, which is obviously frustrating for supporters.

  • The thing is, the support is paying the money to watch the games.

  • It's not their money for the player.

  • They just want the player in.

  • It's a huge boost for them.

  • Head of a massive game tonight is what it must be said.

  • I thought I did really well against trying here.

  • To be honest with you, I think I could have seen a real bonanza potentially on the pictures.

  • Well, so that was a good result.

  • Him He went strong in that game, is going strong in the cups.

  • And because of that Europa League comeback as well, they're gonna need bodies.

  • But he looks a real player.

  • This guy, I mean talking.

  • We're looking at him in the summer as well, and I thought that was gonna happen.

  • But he's gonna go to Manchester United.

  • But from what I've seen, they get a very, very good player.

  • Yeah, they are analysis.

  • That's kind of talk for themselves when it comes to Bruno Fernandez.

  • Really?

  • And it is.

  • Michael touched on there.

  • We knew how much they were in need of bodies.

  • And that was even before the injury to pull Popo into Scott make Tommy.

  • Obviously Marcus Rashford is out now, so gold could potentially be fairly hard to come by it.

  • His stats are impressively, really hugely impressive for a midfielder, more like those of a striker.

  • Really, which will be news to the fans is I should think I'm Since the start of last season, he's got more goals on more assists than Kevin Debra Weiner on Philip continuous.

  • So those are the the likes of the caliber of the play.

  • We're talking about 32 goals and 18 assists last season.

  • This season has been prolific formers well, 15 goals and 14 assists.

  • Manchester United fans be hoping he can continue.

  • Ery left off definitely has been described as the best player in Portugal.

  • For a number of years, he has dominated the league controlled matches.

  • As Alice says, it's Statistics speak for themselves.

  • So the Manchester United are getting a real gem of a player who could transform their midfield.

  • And we mentioned obviously the Barcelona element there, Michael, you could have touched on Tottenham, perhaps being interested in him in the past and it's almost like Manchester ties that are taking their time over this because they think is their deal to be done is there a chance another club may swoop in for him and actually you know, because he is a salt after player, would you be surprised to see that happen?

  • We see Barcelona reports yesterday and I saw Barcelona report on Eriksson and got down on its way.

  • We don't know.

  • It looks like it's going to be Manchester United Manchester United fan site that we hope it is a swell but they've got Matt.

  • I mean, they are fifth got so many massive games coming up.

  • This could be a huge, huge plus for them.

  • He's not even that old.

  • I like his attitude after the summer, you know, he was in tears when he thought he was leaving.

  • Joining topped them all mentioned United last summer, but look, he's kept his attitude spot on.
