O Jogo: United 'don't rely' on selling Paul Pogba to sign Bruno Fernandes
- The Reds are believed to be chasing the playmaker whether the Frenchman stays or leaves.
- United are reportedly finalizing a £71m move for the 24-year-old.
Manchester United and Manchester City allegedly are in a two-horse race for exciting Sporting playmaker Bruno Fernandes. The Reds are believed to be leading the way at the moment.
According to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, Paul Pogba's uncertain situation at Old Trafford won't affect the Red Devils intentions regarding the 24-year-old. It's stated United are going to push for the Portuguese's signature whether the midfielder decides to stay or to leave for Real Madrid.
A Bola, another controversial Portuguese media outlet, earlier reported United were confident they would finalize a £71m move for Fernandes in the near future.
The versatile midfielder enjoyed a spectacular season with Sporting. The 24-year-old made 50 goal contributions in 53 appearances across all competitions. The Portuguese's 32 goals are particularly impressive as he scored such a tally playing from the midfield.
