The star has been flooded by Instagram messages from fans telling him to come to Old Trafford.
The Sporting Lisbon midfielder is believed to be on the verge of sealing a move to the Premier League for a figure in the region of £52million.
United have been in hot pursuit of the Portuguese with the clubs locked in negotiations over a transfer fee.
Now the Portuguese media say that Fernandes, 24, will play his final match for Sporting in a local derby with Benfica on Sunday before completing his move.
The two arch-enemies go head-to-head in the Portuguese Super Cup and his present coach Marcel Keizer wants him fully focused on the game.
United fans have inundated Fernandes’ girlfriend Ana Pinho with Instagram messages encouraging him to come to Manchester.
Ana is a keen Instagram user, keeping her followers up to date with her jetset lifestyle.
Her latest pics are with a pal which she has captioned with a heart emoji.
“Tell your husband to come to United”
In the comments, one United fan has written: “Tell your husband to come to United.”
Another wrote: “Welcome to the biggest club in England and most popular club in the world Manchester United.”
United are keen to reinforce this summer but have been hampered by failing to qualify for the Champions League.
They have lost Ander Herrera to Paris Saint Germain while Paul Pogba may also be on his way out of the club.
With Real Madrid’s poor preseason form, it has ramped up rumours that they are waiting to pounce for Pogba who has admitted that he is ready for “a new challenge somewhere else”.
United are being closely linked to a move for Juventus’ Paulo Dybala with Romelu Lukaku heading the other way.
