Manchester City look set to bolster their midfield options with Fernando’s agent, Antonio Araujo, confirming that the Porto man is on course for a move to the Premier League.
The Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Etihad for months and was close to getting a deal done in January.
However, Porto did not want to sell and City were made to wait until this window to get their man.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “Everything is in Porto’s hands and we hope to finalise the transfer by the end of the week.
“Fernando is in the city of Porto waiting for Porto tell him their decision about the documents they have received so that he can travel immediately.”
