Wan-Bissaka reveals Thierry Henry and Wilfried Zaha influence

Here’s how much Arsenal will have to pay to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer

Here’s how much Arsenal will have to pay to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer

On the other hand, more recently, London Evening Standard have claimed that United are confident they will get a clear run to sign Fernandes and Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.

While no deal has been agreed with his club, the player does have a £36million release clause.

The Frenchman was seen as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who is keen on a move to Inter Milan this summer.

However according to reports so far the Serie A side have been unable, or unwilling, to match the Premier League club's asking price, as they try to sell Mauro Icardi to finance the deal. The player has now forced his way into the France squad, scoring his first worldwide goal in the win over Andorra earlier this month.

"I want Bruno Fernandes to stay, but everyone knows the current situation", he said. "I can not be disrespectful to the club, whatever the final decision, I'll be fine, I'm not anxious about my future".

Adrien might have conceded a penalty with his challenge but Nigeria's protests were waved away by referee Bakary Gassama. However, it has been nearly eight years since the teams met during qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations .

Ole Gunner Solskjaer is wasting no time revamping his squad this summer as the United boss has already snapped up winger Daniel James from Swansea while right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka completed his move from Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Lukaku scored 12 league goals last season but is now second choice behind Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer's conundrum has been furthered by the French World Cup winner's flirting with Real Madrid and Juventus, and after scoring 16 goals last term his departure would leave a creative and goal-scoring hole at the heart of United's midfield.

In the past week or so, reports in Portugal (Record - A Bola) have suggested that United are in pole position to sign the highly rated attacker.
