Alfredo Pedulla believe the Macedonian midfielder, 26, could sign his four-year deal and have it all confirmed as soon as tomorrow.

Tottenham Hotspur linked attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes has not agreed personal terms with Manchester United despite claims to the contrary.

Fernandes scored an impressive 20 goals and made 13 assists in 33 league games for Sporting Lisbon last season.

And even Sporting are beginning to resign themselves to the fact that they are going to struggle to hold on to their star man. Today, I am fully recovered, I worked a lot.

The departure of Ander Herrera, and speculations of Paul Pogba leaving the Old Trafford this summer has compelled Manchester United to pursue the Portuguese International to fill the void.

This potential offer falls short of Sporting Lisbon's €70 million valuation of Fernandes, meaning Manchester United might have to table a bid worth a higher amount to land their man.

That leaves Manchester United in a strong position with the lack of competition for his signature. There's a lot of criticism around the players, sometimes it doesn't always go well."You work hard, you want to perform for the team, but some things go wrong, and these can be out of your control".

Fernandes has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in recent weeks, although it now appears that United are the only English contenders to sign the playmaker. We expect them to be a top one or two.

That report adds that while Sporting CP do need the money, they are reluctant to sell on the cheap after rivals Benfica got €120m for Joao Felix.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season under Solskjaer after he was brought in to replace Jose Mourinho back in December.
