Former Manchester United winger Nani revealed his role in convincing Bruno Fernandes to join the club. Fernandes has been one of the most important players for United since his £47m moves from Sporting CP in 2020. He has been involved in 77 goals in his 96 appearances for the club. He received the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award for the past two seasons despite playing just half of the first. Nani knew all about the talents of his compatriot after playing with him at Sporting.
“I was the first one to tell him he should go to England and if he decides to go to England, if he can choose Man Utd it would be the best thing for him.” former Manchester United winger Nani said about Bruno Fernandes. “That was funny because a couple of months later when I went to Orlando I saw the news and I texted him because I was seeing Man City and Man Utd and Tottenham were fighting for him and I said, ‘If you have to go, you choose Man United! It’s the best!’”
“It’s special now with Cristiano there,” he added. “Obviously, when you see the news and the situation of him at Juventus you could imagine that there was no better place for him to go than to go back. In my head, I knew he could go. I knew the news would be true so it wasn’t that much of a surprise to me.”
