Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes is leaning towards the Manchester United option in January,
O Jogo says Fernandes now finds United a more attractive proposition than Tottenham.
Fernandes believes he's got a better chance of first-team action at Old Trafford due to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's lack of midfield options.
The Premier League duo were battling it out for the 24-year-old over the summer with Spurs considered the more likely to secure his signature.
Over the weekend, The Sun reported that Fernandes' agent Miguel Pinho was in London to discuss a deal with United officials - but further reports claim his £70million valuation is still a stumbling block.
we have so many quick players but if the opposition park bus we can't seem to break through and find a way to win
Quick players need space to run into. Cannot all rely on quick players. Not everyone is gonna play an open game with us which will favour us.
When opponents park bus, we need creative players.. like Bruno / Eriksen / Maddison.
We have Mata.. who deteriorated very quickly in recent years. Like Matic
