Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed how Bruno Fernandes convinced him to sign him for the Red Devils.

In his latest interview with Sky Sports, the Manchester United talked about Bruno Fernandes extensively.

According to the former Manchester United striker, he was drawn to Bruno Fernandes because of his character and personality.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went to watch the player in action for Sporting Lisbon before Manchester United splashed the cash on Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester United paid an initial fee of £47m to Sporting Lisbon for the player and they could still pay a further £21m in add-ons and bonuses.

Bruno Fernandes has gone a long way to pay a part of that money after his bright start to life at the Theatre of Dreams. He has already scored three goals in six starts and one substitute appearance for his new team.

Bruno Fernandes has been able to breathe life into the Champions League aspirations of the Red Devils. They are in fifth position on the league table and they are three points off Champions League football chasing rivals Chelsea who are in fourth place.

The first four spots in the league are for Champions League football but fifth place would be available for the competition if the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) upholds the UEFA ban slammed on second-placed Manchester City.

The Premier League champions were banned by UEFA for two seasons for breaching Financial Fair Play rules and regulations.

Bruno Fernandes was not the only player signed by Manchester United this year as Odion Ighalo also joined.

The Nigerian striker signed for boyhood club Manchester United in the 2020 January winter transfer market. He has joined on loan for the remainder of this season after he was granted permission to make the move by parent team Shanghai Shenhua FC of China.

Ighalo has scored three goals in two starts and two substitute matches since his arrival.

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.
