Sources told ESPN Sporting had offered Fernandes to United at the start of the month in an attempt to ease their financial difficulties, but there were obstacles which prolonged it.

United monitored the midfielder last summer before deciding against making an offer but injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, and Sporting’s desire to sell the player, have seen the club strike a deal.

Fernandes, ranked the No. 10 attacking midfielder in ESPN FC 100, has scored 13 goals and provided 13 assists in all competitions so far this season.

He helped Sporting win the Portuguese Cup and the Portuguese League Cup last season and put pen to paper on a new deal with the club in November, but has decided to continue his career at Old Trafford.

The midfielder is the fourth signing under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire joining United last summer.
