Bruno Fernandes’ move to Manchester United is part of a Fifa investigation after Sampdoria lodged a complaint against Sporting Lisbon for unpaid sell-on fees.

World football’s governing body has confirmed the probe after Fernandes completed a £47million move to Old Trafford in January.

Sampdoria claim they are due around £4million after inserting a 10 percent sell-on clause when the Portugal international left them for Sporting in 2017.

Fernandes joined United in a 55million euros deal, which also included 10million euros in ‘achievable’ add-ons and a further 15million euros based on personal achievements such as winning the Ballon d’Or.
