The English Premier League outfit Man United have been handed a free run in the pursuit of Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
This is after it is reported that the English Premier League title holders Man City are reported to have pulled out of the race for the forward.
Bruno Fernandes, a 31-goal midfielder has been pegged a price tag of £50 million which the Red Devils will be willing to pay should an agreement be reached with the player as they now stand the chance.
It is reported that Man City boss Pep Guardiola now puts his attention on Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid star Rodri as a better option who can take over for Fernandinho.
Man City are looking for a player who has a long-term future to deliver and Bruno Fernandes has not fallen in that category.
However, Bruno Fernandes has buy-out clause of £86 million but it has been suggested that a 350 million would be accepted by the Spanish side if a bargain is set t go down.
Bruno Fernandes could serve as a replacement for Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez who seem to be on their way out of the club.
