Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has teased fans before the Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur after admitting it would be “amazing” to finally play with his Old Trafford teammate Paul Pogba.
The Red Devils duo have been training together ahead of the Premier League restart. However, they still haven’t played together for the first team as Fernandes’ arrival in January coincided with Pogba’s injury.
The Portuguese has been a complete revelation ever since he moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon. Indeed, Fernandes has scored two goals and supplied three assists in only five games in the English top flight so far, while averaging 3.8 shots per game in the division.
Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, the Portugal midfielder could not contain his excitement and added that he can’t wait to get back on the pitch for Manchester United again.
It is fair to say that Pogba has been at the centre of rampant speculation in recent months, as the 27-year-old has repeatedly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford. Both Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus and Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid have registered their interest in the French World Cup winner.
Despite the fact he has only managed 521 minutes of competitive action this season, he has still averaged 2.3 key passes per game (via WhoScored).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been frustrated by a lack of creative options and if the two stars can work together, United may be able to qualify for Champions League football next season. At the moment, Solskjaer’s side are fifth in the table, and they face Spurs away on Friday, who are now managed by former Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils have won the last two games between the teams, which may give them a confidence boost heading into the fixture.
Unsurprisingly, many United fans gushed over Fernandes’ comments, with one fan tweeting “Jose ain’t ready” while another supporter feels that the “unstoppable” duo will create a moment of “magic.”
