Man United AGREE personal terms and agent fee for next huge signing as deal ‘close to be secured’

According to reports from David Ornstein, Manchester United has overcome two of the final obstacles in its pursuit to sign Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna, but they are still considering a key component of the deal.

According to Ornstein, talks will continue as to whether Man Utd agree a different price with Bologna or if they hit the £33.9m clause to get their man.
