Manchester United haggling over £7m in pursuit of Bruno Fernandes
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, United have offered £55m for the central midfielder.
However, Sporting are holding out for at least £62m and have told the Red Devils of their valuation.
United remain in a strong position to sign the 24-year-old, who scored 31 goals in all competitions last term.
Fernandes also seems keen on a move, with the Portugal international admitting that he would like to play in England.
But Sporting have so far stood firm in their desire to recoup more than £60m for their star man.
