Manchester United Transfer: Bruno Fernandes Tactical Analysis




Bruno Fernandes

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.

Dayot Upamecano

This might not be good news for English Premier League club Manchester United as they have been told that they are not alone in the race for Dayot Upamecano and it is made clear that there are yet to be a concrete offer for his signature.

The player himself made this known when he admitted he has been in great demand but noted that he does not know what the future holds for him as he has just signed a new contract with his club because he wants to be with his teammates.

The RB Leipzig was also on Arsenal radar but with the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes, the Red Devils will now enjoy a free run for his signature in   January.

It is understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the 21-year-old as he was attracted by his impressive performances on RB Leipzig’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, reports claim that the Red Devils board is not too convinced about the readiness of Dayot Upamecano for a first-team football in the English Premier League and that has to be sorted out before an official bid is submitted to his club in January.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo might have parted ways with his former club, Manchester United but that does not mean he has not been having one influence or the other on the club.

This was made known by former defender Patrice Evra who claims that the Portuguese star played a major role in bringing Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United in the last winter transfer window.

He revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who gave the go-ahead to the club to move in for Bruno Fernandes as they did not know anything about the player before his capture.

Patrice Evra stated that Bruno Fernandes is now making a massive impact at the club by ensuring more wins and helping to bring out the best in Paul Pogba.

Bruno Fernandes has even boasted that the best is yet to be seen of him as he has been training very hard to help his team the more in the coming season.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a living legend of Manchester United as he made a very big impact at the Old Trafford, including winning of the Champions League, the Premier League as well as winning the World Best Footballer award as a Red Devils player under manager Alex Ferguson.

Benoit Badiashile

The search by English Premier League club Manchester United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.

Manchester United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.

According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.

This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him in January transfer window.

The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.

One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in January is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals   last season.

However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in January.
