Manchester United: Fans gush over latest Bruno Fernandes development

According to quotes from Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper via Stretty News, a deal between Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon for star midfielder Bruno Fernandes ‘will happen’ resulting in fans jumping for joy on social media and remaining hopeful over the news. 

Fernandes, who has long been at the centre of a transfer saga linking him with a move to Old Trafford (Corriere dello Sport), has been racking up brilliant numbers from midfield in Portugal over the last few seasons – scoring a total 63 goals and 51 assists from midfield in 134 appearances for Sporting (Transfermarkt).

Now, with Fernandes reportedly close to signing for the Red Devils, fans have been rejoicing on social media over the prospect of a prolific central attacking midfielder. In comparison to current midfield man Jesse Lingard, the numbers just don’t compare, with Fernandes eclipsing the Englishman in terms of goals (8), assists (7), key passes per game (3.7) and shots per game (3.6), as per WhoScored.com. 

Here’s how supporters reacted to the crucial update on Twitter.
