Before signing the Portuguese rising star Solskjaer was on the brink of being sacked and it was clear that his team need that magic factor to let him continue be the boss at Man United. In this time of crisis Solskjaer had to find a key player who could boost the club morale and win games that United should have won. In such a time Ronaldo’s opinion on the Sporting Lisbon star, had a huge impact on Solskjaer and it was the key factor in signing of the Portuguese Rising star Bruno Fernandes.
Bruno Fernandes has indeed changed the way Man United used to play and have placed Man United back on track for the top 4 finish. His duo with Paul Pogba has been very mesmerizing, inspite of the fact that Paul Pogba had returned from a recent knee injury.

“I think any player who joins Manchester United wants to win everything; I want to win every competition that Manchester United compete in.”
“I’m an ambitious player who wants success and I want to win every game in every competition we’re in.”
Bruno wanted to make his mark as a legend and in on his to do so as we speak. He is such a versatile player that he is able to draw out the maximum potential out of every one of the player on the field. His touches on the ball makes it easy for his team mates to garb the ball in a comfortable position and score one for the team.
