The management of Manchester United Football Club have confirmed a deal for Sporting Lisbon captain, Bruno Fernandes.
Fernandes, however, has agreed a four-and-a-half year contract with the option of an extra year.
The Portuguese midfielder will earn around £70,000 per-week plus bonuses.
A statement posted by the club on its social media platforms read.
“Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Sporting Clube de Portugal for the transfer of Bruno Fernandes.
The deal is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms.
A further announcement will be made in due course.”
Man United have to pay an initial fee of 55m euros (£46.56m) plus add-ons for Fernandes, with the deal eventually rising to 80m euros (£67.76m).
Meanwhile, Sporting Lisbon would receive a further 10m euros (£8.46m) from the Red Devils, if Fernandes reaches what are considered easily achievable targets and an additional 15m euros (£12.7m) if more difficult targets are met.
Manchester Utd fans have already started welcoming their new player “Bruno Fernandez” to Old Trafford.
