Manchester United needed to splash the cash on new players to boost the club after a difficult start to 2020 could be easily traced to injuries to key players like Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay. They have made their move by spending a lot of money on Bruno Fernandes whom they signed from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.
Manchester United have paid an initial fee of £46.6m for Bruno Fernandes plus add-ons (£7.5m) and bonuses (£12.7m).
Bruno Fernandes is a Portuguese midfielder that would add a goal threat to a Manchester United midfield lacking in goals in the Premier League this season.
The 25-year-old has scored goals for fun in the past seasons. In addition, he can play anywhere in midfield but the biggest need for Manchester United is a creative midfielder popularly known as the no. 10 role behind the striker and Bruno Fernandes is expected to assume that role immediately.
