Manchester United hope to sign FC Porto Midfielder Fernando by Friday


Manchester United are hopeful of signing a new Brazilian midfielder by Friday. United are close to signing FC Porto Fernando. The deal should be done by the end of the week, according to Miguel Delaney from ESPN.

FC Porto Fernando is thought to be valued around the £10m mark,could be an ideal signing, but probably more of a stop-gap until the summer. Obviously, there are other teams in the running for Fernando too, not just United. Lots of midfielders have been linked to United this January transfer window. Which makes sense given how much David Moyes needs to strengthen the midfield position. And he hasn’t been shy about that.

Fernando is 6 feet tall and 25 years old. Although United have not been successful in their first approach for Fernando, they still remain hopeful of signing him before the transfer deadline closes at 11pm on Friday.

  2. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

  3. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would
    really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your
    design. Bless you

  4. certainly like your web-site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of
    your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell
    the reality however I’ll definitely come back again.
