United fans may be wondering how their season could be different if the club’s attack became more flexible when it came to some of the opportunities created by Fernandes.

How did Bruno Fernandes play for Manchester United?

Fernandes is arguably the club’s smartest addition in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.

In a total of 185 matches, he has scored 64 goals and 54 assists which is impressive as he is usually positioned in the central attacking midfield position.

His best comeback came in the 2020/21 season when he scored 28 goals and added 17 assists in 58 games.

Also, in the absence of Harry Maguire, Fernandes has taken on the duties of captaincy and looks ready to be named club captain, regardless of whether Maguire stays or not.

Another rope leading to his growing supply is his availability, especially this past season, which has driven the majority of players out of the park when he just missed out. three games in his team’s 62-match campaign.

Is a centre-forward the missing piece of Manchester United’s puzzle?

The footage would suggest so, wouldn’t it?

According to the official Premier League website, the United Portuguese midfielder created the most chances last season with 119, while also finishing ninth in the league’s assists chart.

However, it seems likely that any money left over United’s future will be invested in a new goalkeeper following the departure of David de Gea. While securing a new backstop is all well and good, last season’s weaknesses in front of goal – highlighted by the footage – should be an area of ​​deep concern.

United’s early interest in Tottenham Hotspur and English hitman Harry Kane is sure to keep Old Trafford devotees on notice.

However, their tight budget, plus Spurs chief Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sell to a Premier League side, meant Kane would never really find his way to the ‘Theater’ of dreams’.

Atalanta’s 20-year-old Rasmus Hojlund – who has been likened to goal-scoring Haaland – is currently United’s top target for a new striker for the upcoming season, but the Serie A club will not be willing to sell.

Whether the club heads can strike a deal remains to be seen, but Fernandes will certainly hope that his bosses can bring the talented youngster to Old Trafford.
