Manchester United’s pursuit of Bruno Fernandes appears to be gathering pace after their chief transfer man was spotted arriving at Carrington.

Head of corporate development Matt Judge was seen being driven into the training ground on Thursday morning as a deal for the Sporting Lisbon playmaker edges closer.

Judge rarely makes an appearance at the Carrington complex but was photographed arriving in the passenger seat of a Mercedes as talk of a transfer intensifies.

Fernandes has been a long-term target of United’s as they look to add creativity to an injury-ravaged midfield, with the 25-year-old considered the Red Devils’ top priority in January.

Bruno Fernandes agreement

Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Bruno Fernandes.

Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes has been brought in as United attempt to finalise a fee with Sporting, who had been hoping to bring in as much as £68million for their captain.

Express Sport understands United had been willing to give Fernandes a contract worth a whopping £150,000 a week, which would represent a significant increase on his current salary.

Solskjaer has made the 25-year-old his top January transfer target and Ed Woodward has given him the financial backing to pursue a deal.

The Telegraph now report United have sorted out personal terms with Fernandes, who is expected to put pen to paper on a minimum four-and-a-half-year contract.

Mesut Ozil future

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has absolutely no intention of leaving the Emirates Stadium in the near future.

The Gunners playmaker has been linked with a loan move elsewhere with Galatasaray expected to submit an offer in January.

But Ozil revealed he’s planning to see out his £350,000 per-week contract at Arsenal.

“I’m very pleased with my contract and I will continue here this season and next,” Ozil told beIN Sports when quizzed about his future. “I can’t tell you what the future will bring, I’m excited about the future, but I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Olivier Giroud latest

Olivier Giroud looks set to leave Chelsea in the next four days.

The Guardian claim Inter Milan have upped their offer to £4.3million after the arrival of director Piero Ausilio in London on Wednesday.

Chelsea turned their noses up at Inter’s original £3.4m bid but the Italian side are now hopeful of concluding a deal this week.

Despite being behind Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez in the pecking order, Giroud believes he’ll have more first-team opportunities at the San Siro.

Manchester United have offered another player in exchange for Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils are believed to have already offered Joel Pereira, Angel Gomes and Marcos Rojo as part of a swap deal.

But the Portuguese side weren’t interested.

Now, Portuguese television channel tvi24 claim United have spoken about the prospect of Sporting signing Tahith Chong as part of the deal.

Journalist Rui Pedro Braz does make clear that Chong moving to Sporting is unlikely, because he has a host of offers from other clubs and is out of contract in the summer.

Jadon Sancho to Chelsea

Roman Abramovich wants to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

That’s according to transfer expert Duncan Castles, who claims the Chelsea owner wants a marquee signing to replace Willian.

The Brazilian playmaker is reportedly heading for the exit having only been offered a one-year contract extension and Abramovich alongside director Marina Granovskaia have £100million-rated Sancho in their sights.

“Their priority is on the wing, where they envisage losing Willian because they have offered Willian a new contract but only a one-year contract because of his age,” Castles said on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast.

“Chelsea are preparing for his exit. I’m told they are focusing on wingers at present. One of those strong options for them is Jadon Sancho.

“My understanding is the club, i.e. Roman Abramovich and Marina Granovskaia, are very keen on taking Sancho. They’re keen on making a statement signing.”

Forward Timo Werner says he will not agitate for a move away from RB Leipzig in January.

However, the Germany striker did reveal he finds the Premier League is the "most interesting" league in the world.

Real Madrid, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been linked with the prolific 23-year-old, who stated he’s in no rush to make the leap abroad.

"The Premier League is certainly the most interesting league, you have to say. There is a certain flair to watching the English league and playing there,” he told Bild.
