Transfer news LIVE: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United
06:30 UPDATE: Man Utd at odds over Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward have differing opinions on £70m-man Bruno Fernandes.

Local newspaper Correio da Manha, though, claim Woodward is not convinced about paying more than £50m for Fernandes because of his lack of Champions League experience.
