Manchester United is confident of sealing the transfer of Sporting Lisbon Bruno Fernandes after meeting his 60 million pounds valuation.
The negotiations between the two clubs are said to be in their final stages and the transfer is expected to be completed by Friday.
This means that Sporting Lisbon will miss Bruno Fernandes’s services in their next match against Benfica.

The club is however optimistic that he will still feature in the match and will be a good opportunity to bid goodbye to the fans.
Representatives from both sides are said to have met on Thursday over the valuation of the 25-year old midfielder.
It is rumored that Sporting Lisbon wants 42 million pounds upfront before they release their star.
United, however, made things even easier when they increased the offer to 55 million pounds and 4 million pounds in bonuses.
Reports indicate that Lisbon wanted several United players in exchange for their star.
Marcos Rojo and Andreas Pereira are the two players linked with a move to Portugal but they both declined the offer.
The decision by the Ole Gunner Solskjaer to approach Fernandes follows the loss of Frenchman Paul Pogba to injury.
