Bruno Fernandes is the name making the rounds at Stretford End since the opening of the January transfer window and given that any premier league team will be lucky to have the Sporting Lisbon midfielder within its ranks, United being on the verge of landing the Portuguese is the best thing to have happened to the club since last year.

With injuries to Mctominnay and Pogba disrupting the team’s rhythm and making it hard for them to put in consistent shifts like Liverpool has managed to do for much of the season, getting players like Fernandes to Old Trafford is the kind of news that will make Rio Ferdinand scream Bruno’s name on Twitter. He actually did it.

The club are also hoping to add Lille’s Soumare and Dinamo Zagreb’s winger Olmo to its ranks once the deal with Fernandes is done.

Fernandes to United means the Red Devils at least get to have a player that fortifies their midfield that have continued to plagued them since Ferguson stepped down from the club.

If not for the revelation of Mctominnay who stood up to replace Pogba when the France international picked up an early season knock, the United midfield would have been nothing to write home about.

Fred later stepped up but it was Mctomminay’s solid shift that ensured Solskjaer and his team were able to put in quality shifts early in the season.

Soumare is also a midfielder and it only makes sense that Woodward will chose to go for the Lille man given that all too well, the United midfield has been troubled more than any other department.

Olmo who happens to be a winger was initially been pursued by Barcelona but owing to the sacking of Ernesto Valverde, the new coach has decided against it.

This means if United play their cards well, they could have all three players before the month ends.
