Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes is reportedly 'desperate' to make the switch to Manchester United in this transfer window.
The 25-year-old was heavily linked with moves to both the Red Devils and Tottenham Hotspur in the summer and recent reports have indicated that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have reopened talks with their Portuguese counterparts.
It is believed that Lisbon are now more prepared to entertain conversations about selling their prized playmaker because of their difficult financial situation.
O Jogo reports that the player himself is keen to secure a move to England, with United being a club that he "really wants" to move to.
The Portuguese international, whose formed sides include Udinese and Sampdoria, has scored six goals in 14 league games for Sporting this season.body check tags ::
