Newspaper Headline: Fernandes finally announced

This headline is taken from the Independent (Thursday January 30th 2019) and refers to the transfer of Portuguese midfield international Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United.

The full explanation of this three-word headline would be something like: ‘It has been announced that Portuguese player Bruno Fernandes has finally signed for Manchester United’ – Fernandes finally announced.
