Manchester United have requested a meeting with Sporting as they look to wrap up a deal to bring the player to Old Trafford as soon as possible.
Our sources state that Fernandes is a key priority for United, who are confident they will be able to nab the former Sampdoria man.
Manchester United are said to have made an offer worth €55m plus a further €25m in bonuses, whereas London outfit Tottenham have offered €65m.
Recently, Fernandes spoke of his desire to play in the Premier League last month after revealing he would be open to a move away.
The Portuguese playmaker said: “If an irrefutable proposal for me arrives, and it’s good for the club, let’s get together and decide together.
“I always said that I was an ambitious player and from a very early age I have had a dream of playing in England, where you can live pure football without big controversy, without big cases.”
Manchester United are keen to acquire the services of Bruno this summer and want to partner him up with Pogba in the midfield.
