Manchester United finally sets to make Portuguese highly rated star transfer move

The Independent says United are confident of luring Fernandes to Old Trafford but know they will likely have to bid more than £50million to land the central midfielder.

It is added that Fernandes himself is keen on making the move to Manchester.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid is reported to have instructed Paul Pogba and Mino Raiola to keep quiet as they continue with their attempts to sign the World Cup winner.

Spanish outlet AS, cited by Sport Witness, say Madrid don’t want to risk upsetting United and ruining their chances of landing Pogba with constant remarks from the player and his agent.

With regards to Romelu Lukaku’s future, Inter Milan are reportedly expected to make a fresh bid for the Belgian forward.

Sky Sports say the offer is expected to be worth £60million plus add-ons that could take the fee closer to United’s valuation of the player.

United want more than £75m for Lukaku.

Inter officials are said to want the deal completed as soon as possible as they are wary the English transfer window closes in just over three weeks.

Inter would be able to sign Lukaku beyond the closure of the window in England but United would not be able to sign a replacement for him after August 8.

However, while Sky Sports say Inter are preparing an improved offer for Lukaku, Italian outlet Calciomercato are claiming they have identified Duvan Zapata as an alternative target to the 26-year-old.

Zapata scored 28 goals for Atalanta last season and Inter is said to have turned to him because they don’t think Lukaku is worth what United are valuing him at.

Finally, the Evening Standard says Ed Woodward has not travelled on United’s pre-season tour of Australia and Southeast Asia as he attempts to conclude deals for Harry Maguire and Sean Longstaff back in England.
