Bruno Fernandes Is Manchester United’s Revelation Last Campaign
Bruno Fernandes, after arriving from Sporting CP last winter, immediately established himself at the club, becoming the present darling of the Red Devils. The playmaker now says that his compatriot continues to keep close tabs on United.
“It was my dream to play in the Premier League,” Bruno Fernandes tells the club’s official website. “I have the choice to come to Manchester United and it was two dreams in one. It was perfect.”
Fernandes, who turns 26 at the beginning of September continues: “Every time I speak with him, he asks me how Manchester is and if everything is okay. Everyone knows he spent a lot of time in Manchester and he has consideration for the club. He likes the club, I think he won his first Ballon d’Or here, so it’s a club who’ve marked him, for sure.”
However, the midfield maestro admitted that he did not discuss his winter switch with Ronaldo because he needed no convincing that he was about making the right move.
“I spoke with him after, not before. I said before – Manchester, for me, was the dream team,” revealed Fernandes. “I always wanted to play for this team, and it doesn’t matter who can talk about it – bad or good, I will come.”
Bruno Fernandes now has 12 goals from 22 games since joining the Old Trafford side, including converting all eight penalties he has taken. Additionally, he has contributed eight assists to his team’s success.
