MANCHESTER, NETRALNEWS.COM - Bruno Fernandes, a winter signing conducted by Manchester United (MU), is predicted to become a legend at the Red Devils club, says teammate Diogo Dalot.

"He is a great player. He will become a legend, I'm sure," Dalot said in the official Manchester United edition of Sky Sports, Tuesday (03/17/2020).

"His ability is extraordinary and he can be even better. He can learn a lot from this club. He really is a player whose presence is very unusual for this team," he added.

Fernandes did seem to have an instant impact since Manchester United were brought in from Sporting CP in the winter transfer market.

The Portuguese midfielder was even named the best player in February by the English League before the competition was suspended due to the Covid-19 global pandemic.

"He had the captain's armband at Sporting, and lots of experience already at the age of 25, with experience playing in Italy and Portugal," Dalot said.

"What is clear is he knows what he is doing, his future is very bright," Dalot said.

MU supporters greeting is also quite warm towards Fernandes, and they have have composed a yell that juxtaposes his name with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Since arriving from Sporting, Fernandes has recorded three goals and presented four assists in eight appearances for Manchester United in all competitions.
