Man United to sign two midfielders after £50m deal is complete

Manchester United expect Sean Longstaff and Bruno Fernandes to follow Aaron Wan-Bissaka through the doors at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are ready to make Crystal Palace’s defender their second signing of the summer after the right-back passed the second stage of his medical.

Manchester United agreed an initial £45 million fee with the Eagles for Wan-Bissaka, and the 21-year-old ace will sign a five-year deal worth more than £80,000-a-week.

Daniel James became Manchester United’s first summer signing earlier this month, but the Premier League giants are still targeting several more deals to boost their struggling team.

The Evening Standard says Manchester United’s attention will now turn to midfield, with the club ‘confident’ of signing both Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff.

The Portugal international has been linked with many Premier League sides this transfer window, but all of them have all withdrawn from the race.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants two new midfielders following the exits of Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini and also hopes to secure a deal for English star Longstaff, who only made 11 appearances for Newcastle United last term but impressed scouts before suffering a season-ending injury in March.

It is reported that 21-year-old is keen to complete a move to Old Trafford, with the 20-times English champions set to test Newcastle United’s resolve with an official bid next week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is readying for his first full season in charge of the club, will also look to bring a third midfielder if Paul Pogba leaves.
