Lots of Manchester United fans are reacting to a tweet from journalist Pietro Balzano Prota, who claimed a move for Bruno Fernandes is nearly complete.
According to Prota, who works for Italian outlet Sport Mediaset, the Red Devils have an “agreement” with Sporting CP for Fernandes.
Manchester United have an agreement with Sporting for Bruno Fernandes. They are working on the last details. Various clubs are interested in Fernandes but he’s very close to signing for Manchester United.

The Portuguese playmaker, who enjoyed a truly stunning season at the age of just 24, racking up a whopping 32 goals and 18 assists in 53 games, has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League.
And Prota claims “various clubs” are chasing his signature but the Old Trafford outfit have indeed won the race, saying they are simply working on the final details and that he is “very close” to signing on the dotted line.
Fans are unsurprisingly desperate for the news to be true, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer crying out for a dynamic midfield goal threat who can take some pressure off Paul Pogba.
