Reportedly speaking to Portuguese outlet A Bola via the Manchester Evening News, former Red Devils winger Nani had high praise for Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes surrounding his potential move to Old Trafford – with supporters praising his comments that he could ‘shine’ in England.
Fernandes, who has amassed 15 goals and 13 assists in all competitions for Sporting so far this campaign as per Transfermarkt, has been strongly linked (BBC) with a move to Manchester United since the start of the January transfer window and beforehand (Corriere dello Sport).
Now, with former United hero Nani coming out in praise of the 25-year-old, fans have nothing but love for his comments about how Fernandes could potentially excel in the Premier League.
The Portugal international, compared to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard, looks like a potentially great acquisition – with Fernandes beating the Englishman’s key passes per game ratio (3.7 over 1.1) in the league and registering far more shots per game (3.6 to 0.9), as per WhoScored.com.
As a result, fans seem desperate for the midfielder to make his move and become United’s first signing of the January transfer window, particularly praising Nani for his verdict – find all of their best comments down below.
