Bruno Fernandes admits he had his heart set on a move to the Premier League after Manchester United finally agreed a deal with Sporting. United were in danger of missing out on signing the 25-year-old before the end of the January transfer window as they had refused to meet Sporting’s asking price.

But United stepped up negotiations on Tuesday after learning about Barcelona’s late interest and offered €55 million (£46.5m) up front plus €10m (£8.4m) in bonuses that are considered achievable by Sporting and a further €15m (£12.7m) in payments which are less likely to come to fruition.

Fernandes is expected to arrive in England on Wednesday in order to finalise his move to Old Trafford.
