Manchester United football club of England has confirmed reaching an agreement with Sporting Lisbon of Portugal to sign Portuguese International Bruno Fernandes
After weeks of negotiations, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reached an agreement with the Portuguese super club, a move that will surely entice disillusioned fans.
Sporting Lisbon will receive €55m (£46.56m) initially then will 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.
Manchester United confirming the deal on it's website on Wednesday evening, wrote;
'Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Sporting Clube de Portugal for the transfer of Bruno Fernandes.'
'The deal is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms.'
A further announcement will be made in due course.'
