Manchester United officials have met with Bruno Fernandes’ agent in London this week in order to try and secure his signing for £70m, according to reports.

Portuguese outlet O Jogo, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that the Red Devils remain keen to try and get a deal over the line for the 24-year-old midfielder.

The same article says that Fernandes is “high” on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer wish-list as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

It is also claimed that Tottenham are among the other clubs keeping tabs on Fernandes in the summer transfer window.

The story says that talks between Manchester United chiefs and Fernandes’ representative have been taking place in London this week as the Red Devils look to try and get a deal over the line.

Fernandes has understandably caught the eye of several European clubs after he scored 32 goals and 18 assists for Sporting Lisbon last season.

Manchester United are understood to be keen to strengthen their squad in several areas as they look to bounce back from a disappointing campaign in which they finished sixth in the Premier League and without a trophy.
