The transfer window shuts for Premier League clubs on Thursday, August 8. Manchester United has 48 hours left to finalize any deal. As always United are linked to several players, however, which players are likely to join The Red Devils? This article will hopefully provide you with some answers.
Bruno Fernandes 50%
The Portuguese international has been linked to United all summer. The rumors have varied form “done deal” to “United have no interest”. The Portuguese newspapers claim Sporting demand around 70 million euros, with United only willing to give 55-60.
The Portuguese press (A Bola & Correio da Manhã) both publishes similar reports about Fernandes: “Jorge Mendes has been meeting Manchester United yesterday, as he tries to conclude the transfer ‘as soon as possible’”. The reports have not been confirmed by any English press or the agent.

Christian Eriksen 60%
The rumors about the Danish superstar came from nowhere, however, the reports are coming from big and trustworthy sources: AS, Daily Mail, Matt Law, Rob Dawson, Miguel Delaney, James Ducker, Sky Sports. Have all reported that United are willing to pay 55-60 £ million for Eriksen, and Spurs is willing to let go off the superstar because Erikson only has one year left on his contract. Eriksen told the press in early June, he wanted new challenges and was open for a move.
It´s quite unusual for Manchester United to sign players without the press knowing it for several weeks, but there’s a possibility that the Spurs fan-favorite joins United hours before the window closes.
Paulo Dybala 5%
The Italian paper TuttoSport claims the only thing stopping the Dybala deal, are his agents demanding a big signing-fee. However, both Italian and English press both published identical information about the transfer not happening yesterday.
Do you believe the rumors? Which player(s) do you think United will sign?
