I am sure by now we keep hearing the name Bruno Fernandes here and there in recent transfer news,
Bruno Fernandes is a fantastic 24-year-old-center-midfielder playing for Sporting Lisbon and Portugal.
Having scored 32 goals last season as a midfield player, Bruno Fernandes set a new record for European midfield player with most goals scored in a single season and that set a new breaking record for Frank Lampard who scored 27 goals in 2009/10 for Chelsea.
There is rumour circulating he is heading to Manchester United any time soon but we wait to see how it turns out to be by the end of this transfer window.
Fernandes continues to be in fine form which definitely attracts top European clubs to push for the 24-year-old central midfielder signature.
Bruno Fernandes work rate is incredible – with the ability which cut across the defensive midfield area to the attacking midfield area.
He was transferred to Novara from first-tier Portuguese club Boavista at the age of 18 years which sees his career kick start and then proceed later to Udinese having appeared 95 times for the club in three seasons and netted 11 times for the club.
Bruno later moved to Sampdoria in 2016/17 for a season and later signed for Sporting Lisbon in Portugal for €9.69m In 2017.
Bruno Fernandes is a scoring midfield player with great attacking instinct which is evident through his goal and assists stats. He can play from the centre, left, right midfield which he had done for both Sporting Lisbon and Portugal. His vision for the final pass is deadly and can shoot from anywhere outside the box.
He is a masterclass of attacking play which sees him feature also in assisting role for the club. He finds spaces in the penalty area to give a direct final pass which completely split defences open and he can either create chances for his attackers or he tries to shoot from a range which always gives the team an attacking and scoring edge against opponents.
He is also quick to cut the ball off an attacking opponent into a counter mode for his teammates which we have seen several times.
He decides where he will pass the ball in a simple play which remains one of the skills we can reckon with as he keeps shinning for the club. He comes in tactically and eases the possession of the ball away from his opponents while giving room for runners to find space before giving out the deadly pass.
Having said all that, he is the captain of the team with great leadership mentality and is quick to take decisive tackling every time the need arise. He remains one of the top midfielders in Portugal.
