Bruno Fernandes is about to join Manchester United, with Sporting ready to receive around £ 60 million, but the Portuguese midfielder will play in the Lisbon derby tonight against Benfica, which questions the deal. Marcos Llorente of Atletico Madrid could be available due to lack of playing time, with Diego Simeone eager to shuffle his squad, that is, through Edinson Cavani, but Paris Saint-Germain wants a great rate, even though The Uruguayan has no contract in the summer. Arsenal will expect to give Mikel Arteta a couple of new players, either with short-term loans or free transfers, with Layvin Kurzawa a PSG option to reinforce his left-back options. Manchester City does not seem likely to sign players, despite being significantly out of the pace set by Liverpool, and the Reds are comfortable at this time, both with their leadership in the Premier League and with the fact that they have acquired Japanese Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg.
Chelsea could be busy, both inside and outside: OIivier Giroud seems ready for Inter Milan, while the Italians also seek to add Ashley Young from Man United when Antonio Conte sees a title in his first season in charge at San Siro. Tottenham Hotspur has appeased José Mourinho to some extent by adding Gedson Fernandes in an 18-month loan and could return to the market to add Ze Luis from Porto to cover Harry Kane, who is out for almost the rest of the season .
Ernesto Valverde’s departure could see Quique Setien delivering some new faces in Barcelona, but it seems that the Catalans want to cut their squad first, with Jean-Claude Todibo ready for Schalke in a £ 25 million deal. The 20-year-old joins the loan with a series of options to buy and buy back. Here we detail the latest rumors and news from across the continent as we enter the last two weeks of the season.

Simeone talks about the future of Lemar
“The facts speak for themselves, better than words. It is true that he has not been able to show all his qualities,” Simeone said.
“Every time he was available, I tried to play with him. I was always excited about his qualities as a player.”
“He has not met the expectations set for him, but we have always had the same expectations.”

There are still obstacles, but Bruno Fernandes could soon be a Manchester United player. In negotiations involving agent Jorge Mendes, Fernandes is interested in moving to Old Trafford, leaving Sporting and United to pay a fee.
That is not a mere formality. United’s preference in this window has always been to explore short-term options to cover himself in the midfield, so as not to block or complicate the planned movements for the summer, with James Maddison still admired by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and others in the club.
Senior club sources highlighted the difficulty of making January signings at the beginning of the window. Solskjaer refrained from making adjustments to his squad this time last year while still serving as interim manager and this time last week, he was minimizing the possibility of any newcomer.
