The Portugal global has been linked with a host of top European clubs this summer as his agent clearly looks to secure a move for the attacking midfielder away from his current club Sporting Lisbon.

The 24-year old's agent Miguel Pinho was reportedly in England this past week and held meetings with the club as well as Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, according to Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha.

Tottenham Hotspur held talks with the agent of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes this week in a move that could force Manchester United to make a final decision on the Portugal worldwide.

Several reports claim an announcement will be made - on Bruno Fernandes - as early as next week Wednesday, and it remains to see if these are true or just one of those transfer rumours.

The former Udinese and Sampdoria man was also a key player in the Portuguese side which won the UEFA Nations League this summer.

That refusal to budge on their valuation of Fernandes could allow other clubs to swoop on the midfielder, who has also attracted interest from Tottenham.

If Pogba were to move to Madrid, United themselves are thought to be considering a move for Eriksen.

The report adds that the bid could be turned down by Sporting, given they are aiming to receive at least £70m to part ways with the midfielder, who was recently crowned a Nations League victor with Portugal.
