For a major share of the last decade, Manchester United have been lacking in terms of a proper figure to pull the strings from behind in the midfield.
A variety of names including Fletcher, Fellaini, Schneiderlin, Pogba, and lately the rising youngster McTominay have had the opportunity to operate from the sensitive spot, although the centre of the pitch always remained moderately dormant at Old Trafford.
However, just a single match into his Mancunian career, Bruno Fernandes had shown the supporters that he is the kind of player the team have been looking for.
Unveiling the dark clouds of speculations and doubts, the £60m winter signing has made such a beautiful impact on the club, fulfilling the definite purpose of providing the English side with a creative touch.
The 26-year-old possesses all the attributes the Manchester club have been missing in a midfielder, as the playmaker has brought intelligence on the field apart from flaming conviction amongst the new teammates while bringing pleasure in and around the training complex.
Having not lost a game since the arrival of this midfield maestro, it’s safe to assume that the Red Devils have acquired consistency in their football with the gloomy facade finally lifted.
And it certainly appears to be no coincidence that the Portuguese’s signing overlapped with this sudden explosive emergence of United, as in fact, the talented midfielder is the key figure responsible for this Renaissance period of the Old Trafford outfit.
Furthermore, according to the Bleacher Report, the former Sporting attacker has shown great interest in supporting Scott McTominay develop alongside him. Often seen pulling the Scotland international aside to offer words of advice, Fernandes has successfully managed to inspire his teammate since his own arrival.
It’s also understood that McTominay is wholeheartedly enjoying the constant demand for everyone to reach the Portugal international’s high standards.
Other players who seemed to have also established a strong bond with the January signing are Anthony Martial and the fellow midfielder, Fred.
In the modern-day football, where it’s the midfield that exemplifies the sort of team they want to be, Fernandes has certainly made United more promising and pleasurable to watch with his intelligence and creativity on the pitch, as the Red Devils are no longer the kind of team where beating the one man leading in an attack by the opposition equalled with the termination of the attack.
