The move will cost $56 million and could escalate to $77 million with incentives, and that it could happen as soon as the end of Friday's derby between Sporting and Benfica.

From Sky Sports:

United will be crossing its fingers over Fernandes' health during the 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff is Lisbon.

Sporting is already 12 points off the Champions League places, and 16 off Benfica's title pace.

Fernandes has been red hot for Sporting, notching 15 goals and 13 assists in 25 appearances, including five and three in five Europa League outings.

He scored 32 times with 18 assists in 2018/19, and could take United's Top Four push to a whole new level.
