Manchester United have been hot on heels in the pursuit of Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aiming to bolster his midfield following the departures of Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini and views the 24-year-old as the perfect man to add more creativity to his midfield.

However, the United faithful might have to wait a little longer until they see Fernandes donning the famous red shirt. According to reports, Manchester United want to sign a defender before they can move to improve their midfield.

The Red Devils are said to be chasing Harry Maguire with a view to improving their ailing defensive unit. However, the transfer fee has proven to be a major stumbling block in United’s attempt to acquire the Englishman’s services.

The Red Devils are ready to fork out £70m foe Maguire while Leicester are adamant on accepting any offer below £90m.
