Video: BREAKING NEWS: Manchester United confirm Bruno Fernandes deal

Manchester United have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.


United have agreed a deal worth up to £68m with the Portuguese club, with the player set to fly into the UK on Wednesday evening to complete the move.



Fernandes is due to visit Sporting's head offices on Wednesday where he will terminate his contract with the club and is expected to record a video for his farewell with the Sporting club and fans.


It is expected Fernandes will get his United medical underway on Thursday morning.



United increased their offer to sign Fernandes twice in the past 24 hours. Their second bet was worth up to €80m (£67.76m), which Sporting accepted.


Sporting would receive a further €10m (£8.46m) from United if Fernandes reaches what are considered easily achievable targets and an additional €15m (£12.7m) if more difficult targets are met. It is understood these clauses include Fernandes winning the Ballon d'Or.
