Man United Interested in Bruno Fernandes after Luis Nani

It seems Manchester United is quite interested to take up players from Portugal. Information is there that they are in talks with Bruno to join them very soon and they are sparked with excitement to get this talented footballer from Portugal for their club. The midfielder, known for his sporting nature might make a move to the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

 

 

Before Bruno, the same turn came for Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Nani, when they got the chance to play for Manchester United club. They were selected by Sir Alex Ferguson to become a part of such an incredible legacy in the North West side of England when they were attacking players with no proof. But when they came and joined the club, they started to prove themselves in less time than the time spent by them in Old Trafford.

Luis Nani became an overnight sensation and a hero for Manchester United on his own power and right as he appeared in a total of 230 matches for the club and won 12 trophies for the same within a span of eight years. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo would win almost everything that came his way and that was offered to him in Real Madrid before leaving. That made him easier to strengthen his name as one of the greatest players who have played some of the toughest games for the sport.

As for Fernandes, he feels that he should not be compared or treated as Ronaldo or Nani. He said he finds it difficult to define himself as a player because he shuffles between being a midfielder, a second striker, or even a playmaker. His major strength is versatility and he wants to maintain it. Bruno Fernandes wants to play for a position in which he is needed the most or one which is useful for the game.

Among them have been four titles of the Premier League. He has also been part of the success that the team brought in when they won the finals of the Champions League in the year 2008. Here he was able to succeed in a penalty shootout.

Nani was unable to reach his potential’s maximum limit at Old Trafford which many experts feel. This is something that Rio Ferdinand hinted on in 2017. He stated that there are players in your team who have great abilities but are often not put to the right usage or given the right opportunities. Nani had been a player with much potential but he was sidetracked. He was a great shooter and could do it on left as well as right with great skills. However, he lacked consistency. He is currently with Sporting Lisbon. There was a recent question and answer round on Twitter with the player and here the Portugal International was posed several questions, many of which referred to his career days in Manchester United.
