Manchester United sensation Bruno Fernandes is dishing out advice to academy graduate Scott McTominay, according to a report by Bleacher Report.
The Portuguese international has taken McTominay under his wing on the training ground and sources told the outlet Fernandes is keen to help guide the Scotsman in his development as a player.
Since arriving at Old Trafford amid great fanfare in January for £49.5m, Fernandes has really lived up to all expectations, scoring 2 goals and creating 3 assists in just 5 Premier League appearances under club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Transfermarkt).
Clearly his arrival has had a profound effect on McTominay. Solskjaer feels the Scottish youngster has the potential to improve even further and will no doubt be delighted that Fernandes is acting as a mentor on-and-off the pitch.
The 23-year-old has played in 20 games in the English top flight this season, netting 4 goals and providing 1 assist so far (Transfermarkt).
How much is Scott McTominay worth?
£25m or more
Less than £25m
Fernandes is yet to lose a game in a Red Devils shirt and has helped United to an eleven-game unbeaten run across all competitions.
Unsurprisingly lots of supporters have praised the 25-year-old’s influence on McTominay, with one fan simply stating “what a player.”
