Manchester United have recently returned to winning ways, overcoming the likes of Tottenham, Manchester City and AZ Alkmaar to ease the pressure on Solskjaer’s shoulders.
However, despite their recent win, the Red Devils are well aware they require more reinforcements.
And The Sun say Solskjaer wants to sign Sporting Lisbon star Fernandes, who was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford back in the summer.
Throughout pre-season, Portuguese media repeatedly claimed that United wanted to sign the midfielder, who hit 31 goals across all competitions.
The Red Devils always denied that, insisting they had other targets in mind.
