MANCHESTER UNITED may have finally agreed a deal with Sporting Lisbon for Bruno Fernandes – but they are unlikely to have to cough up the full amount.
The Portuguese side had been holding out for £68million up front with United only originally offering £42.5m plus £8.5m add ons.
Now a breakthrough has been reached that could lead to the Red Devils eventually paying just under that £68m figure in full.
But the chances of that happening in the current climate are slim.
United will cough up £46.6m up front plus £4.2m based on appearances and a further £4.2m if they qualify for the Champions League.
There is also a further £12.7m on offer should Fernandes to win the Ballon D’Or and help take United to Champions League glory.
The 25-year-old has agreed to a four-and-a-half year contract with the option on the club’s side to extend that by a further year.
