Manchester City are nearing completion for the signing of highly sought-after Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese attacking midfielder has also been linked to City’s rivals Manchester United, but it is looking increasingly like the Sky Blue is winning the race for the player.

The Sporting No. 8 has racked up an immense tally of 31 goals and 17 assists in 50 appearances this season, which has made him one of the hottest players in Europe.

One report from Gianluca Di Marzio reports that it is City that have won the race for the midfielder, with the report claiming that an offer of €55m has ‘convinced’ the Portuguese club to ‘give up their jewel’.

Bruno’s impending arrival will only help improve their hopes of European success and further push their dominance of the Premier League, as the rest are already struggling to keep up.
