Bruno Fernandes has followed in the footsteps of his Portugal team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo by joining English Premier League club Manchester United.
The 25-year-old striker moved to the old Trafford club from sporting Lisbon in January and once again said that Ronaldo is the best player in the world, with a slight advantage over Argentina’s Lionel Messi, adding that he has never seen Pele play.
Fernandes has been very impressive since joining the old Trafford club, scoring four goals and making four more assists.
He once told how his conversation with a compatriot convinced him to finally complete his $ 55 million transition in January.
Fernandes told Soccerbible: “as a person from Portugal, every time someone mentions your name along with Ronaldo, you just have to be grateful.
I didn’t see Pele play, so I can’t say that he was the biggest player in the world. For me, Cristiano is the best thing I’ve ever seen. “Cristiano is as Portuguese as I am, and I need to enjoy him. He is the best for me.”
Fernandes recently hailed Ronaldo as his “idol” for giving him advice before sealing his move to Ole Gunnar manutd team, and also praised team-mate and partner Paul Pogba for helping him settle in when he arrived at the English club.
The Portuguese midfielder agreed a contract that saw him move to the Premier League from Manchester United in January for a whopping 51 million pounds.
Fernandes is currently being offered a salary of $ 100,000 a week and $ 5 million a year, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to strengthen his team with the 25-year-old’s presence.
It was reported that Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic allegedly ignored the interests of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain. Although the 30-year-old striker has signed a contract with the old lady until 2023, he is interested in joining Barcelona this summer.
Pjanic joined Juve from rival club Roma four years ago on a deal worth around 32 million euros and has won six major trophies, including three Serie a titles.
