United are understood to have bid around £40m for Fernandes, which was dismissed by Sporting, but are ready to return with a bid of £46.78m, which could rise to £55m with add-ons.
According to Sky Sports News, Bruno Fernandes has boldly expressed his intention to transfer to United and his present club Sporting is reportedly open on granting the 25-year-old's last-ditch wish to join the English football club when the said talks resume.
As a result, Sporting Lisbon's assistant coach Emanuel Ferro has publicly stated his belief that Fernandes will still be at the club beyond the end of January - a group he suggested is shared by the squad.
"We understand the ambition of the player, who prefers to play in a league superior to ours".

United started negotiations for Fernandes two weeks ago after injuries to Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba forced the club to act to support Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market.
Sporting are fourth in the table and Fernandes' eight goals in 16 league appearances have been vital to his side's push for a top-four finish this season. So far we don't know, nor does Bruno know.
