Sporting CP’s Bruno Fernandes could be in the the stands at Anfield for Manchester United’s trip to Liverpool on Sunday as the Red Devils close in on a deal to sign the midfielder.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola (h/t Gareth Bicknall of the Mirror), talks between the clubs are advancing, with United looking to sign Fernandes for a fee of £50 million rising to £65 million.

Per James Ducker of the Telegraph, the 25-year-old has agreed personal terms with United, and Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes, who was at Old Trafford as United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup on Wednesday, has been involved in negotiations.

Sporting reportedly want to keep hold of their star man until Friday’s clash with rivals Benfica, and he could be in the stands at Anfield two days later, per A Bola (h/t Bicknall).
