Fernandes wants double signing.Furthermore – and perhaps most crucially – the paper claims Fernandes wants United to sign two new players before he commits.
As per the report, he wants United to sign a new defender and a new midfielder to boost their push for Premier League glory next season.
It’s suggested he wants a ball-playing centre-half brought in to play alongside Harry Maguire. Both Raphael Varane and Pau Torres appear to fit the ball.

And he also wants the club to ‘upgrade’ their defensive midfield options, with Fred and Nemanja Matic paling in comparison to some of the Premier League’s other players.
They claim that could lead United to make a renewed attempt to prise Declan Rice to the club from West Ham. He would cost in excess of £80m, with the Hammers determined to keep him.
But a huge offer could turn their heads and provide Fernandes with even more licence to wreak havoc at the other end.
