Gedson Fernandes is the calibre of young talent Manchester United need this summer

The 2018/19 Premier League season is already a distant memory for the majority of Manchester United fans, who are now only interested in the summer transfer window.

Without over exaggerating, this summer is without doubt the most important in Manchester United’s recent history – it could make or break them for years to come.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the man the owners are going to trust, then he needs to be backed incredibly well financially to give his side a fighting chance of propelling themselves back into the top four at the very least.

Though a different approach may be taken to the transfer window this time around, with it being reported the Red Devils will look to sign young players with great potential.

One name among a list of many is Benfica and Portugal international Gedson Fernandes (per the Daily Mirror earlier this week) and what an incredible capture he could be for Man United.

Fernandes (who is valued at £19.8 million on Transfermarkt) is one of many extremely talented Benfica youngsters that Manchester United will be interested in over the summer.

The 20-year-old has played an impressive 46 games this season and from his central-midfield role has scored three goals and assisted a further six.

Fernandes has a brilliant engine that allows him to get up and down the pitch with ease, galloping forward while also helping out defensively.

An athletic midfield is very much necessary in the modern game and besides Paul Pogba, the two could form a fantastic partnership together that could be the basis of United’s middle for years to come.

Do you agree that Gedson Fernandes is a player that Man United should sign… Let us know!
