Two new signings for Manchester United and two departures from Manchester City make headlines on Wednesday.

What the papers say

Manchester United's move for Bruno Fernandes has taken a step closer, with the Daily Mirror reporting the midfielder will be heading to Old Trafford by the end of next week after a breakthrough in talks with Sporting.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are also keen on bringing in Birmingham's hot prospect Jude Bellingham and have made a £30m bid for the 16-year-old, the Sun says.

The MLS side set up by David Beckham are looking to Manchester City for their marquee names, with Inter Miami contacting Sergio Aguero and David Silva about potential moves, reports the Sun.

Xherdan Shaqiri could be heading for the Anfield exit door, but Jurgen Klopp's side will want at least £25m for the winger and will not let the 28-year-old leave on loan this month, says the Liverpool Echo.
