United confirmed in a statement that they agreed a deal to sign Fernandes from Sporting for an initial €55million fee with the deal subject to a medical and personal terms being agreed.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Torreira wished his former team-mate well at Old Trafford, "I really hope he adapts quickly, particularly as the Premier League is so physical and intense as a championship.
"I’m sure he has the right mentality to adapt quickly. Obviously he’s joining a big club in Manchester United so I hope he enjoys the move."
With the January transfer window closing on Friday, United are also being linked with late moves for youngsters Nathan Bishop and Jude Bellingham.
