Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United have revealed the squad number for new signing Bruno Fernandes whose transfer was confirmed on Friday evening.

Bruno Fernandes has been handed the number 18 jersey at Manchester United following his big-money move to the Theatre of Dreams.

The number 18 jersey at Manchester United was made famous by club legend Paul Scholes.

Scholes was a key member of the Manchester United team that won a historic debut during the 1998/99 season.

Ashley Young and Frazier Campbell also wore that jersey number while they were at Old Trafford.

Young left Manchester United for Inter Milan earlier in this window after eight-and-a-half years at the club.

He joined Manchester United from Aston Villa in 2011.

Bruno Fernandes could make his Manchester United debut at the weekend.

The Portuguese international is in line to make his first appearance of the season when Manchester United take on Wolves at home in their league clash billed for Saturday evening.

Manchester United paid an initial fee of £46.6m for Bruno Fernandes in addition to add-ons of £7.5m and bonuses of £12.7m to take the deal to the £66.8m mark.

He is the third most expensive player in the history of Manchester United behind Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.
