The report goes on to add that the next few days appear to be crucial in the race to sign the Portugal global, with Sporting valuing the 24-year-old at €70m following an exceptional campaign.

Today, the latest on Bruno Fernandes...

They've reiterated twice this week that the Reds won't raise that offer, and Manchester United and Tottenham are included in almost every claim. His exploits in the Portuguese top-flight also gained him the league's CNID Footballer of the Year award. Additionally, he won the UEFA nations league with Portugal and had a crucial role in its triumph.

Manchester United's void in midfield is growing after the departure of Ander Herrera and possible exit of Paul Pogba this summer.

Caesars owns 34 casinos including Las Vegas-based Caesars Palace, which has hosted major sports and music events. It will create one of the largest casino firms in the USA , and comes after a few turbulent years for Caesars .

However, the Express suggest it's Man Utd who are leading the race to sign the Sporting star and they cite a report from A Bola that claims Fernandes's agent has arrived in England to hold talks with interested parties.

Both Manchester United and Tottenham could lose their most important midfielders this summer.

Old Trafford officials are thought to have informed the Fernandes camp within the past fortnight that they needed some more time in order to close a deal for a right back and asked to be kept abreast of any movement on the Portuguese.

Manchester United and Tottenham appear to be heading up Premier League interest in the Portuguese playmaker following his impressive season for Sporting.
