Bruno Fernandes set to play at Old Trafford
Bruno Fernandes, The Portugal International was on Red Devils’ radar during summer and is now being considered again at Old Trafford. [Goal]
Manchester United are linked with many players and Bruno Fernandes is the latest of the lot. The club decided not to sign the playmaker in summer due to lack of ball retention. But, it is quite clear that Red Devil’s need a playmaker to solve their attacking problems. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aims to find consistency and performances at Old Trafford. Bruno has scored 6 goals and has assisted 7 goals in Portuguese League. While in Europa League he has scored 5 and registered 3 assists to his name.
Was Bruno Fernandes a Primary Target?
Eriksen and Maddison were primary targets but it is unlikely that any one of them will move to Old Trafford in this window. Reports emerged that Eriksen will move to Italy with Inter Milan being the interested club. James Maddison looks to continue his great form with Leicester City as the club will listen to no offers till summer. Another player who is in contention is Ruben Neves from Wolves, the Wolves midfielder is known for his long-range shooting and the incredible amount of work rate.
How much for the Playmaker?
United will have to table a bid near £85 million because in November Bruno signed a new contract with Sporting CP. Manchester United will surely cuss themselves as they had a chance to sign the player in nearly half amount of current release clause.
Tough start to the new year
A player like Bruno Fernandes will always improve a squad like United. The club faces big tests in January as they compete with England’s best teams in League Cup, FA Cup and Premier League. They face Wolves, Manchester City (twice) and Liverpool in this month.
