It still feels like this is one of the worst kept secrets in the January transfer window, but Bruno Fernandes is still not officially a Manchester United player.
The team is crying out for some creativity and leadership in the midfield so he looks like the perfect signing, and this could give United fans an even further hint that the transfer will be done.

One of the most admirable things about Fernandes is seeing his unwavering loyalty to Sporting throughout the speculation that’s been fairly intense since last Summer. They have a huge derby against Benfica at the weekend, so it’s plausible that he wants to play in that and go out on a high.
This performance from United tonight continues to show how much they need a player like him, perhaps the agent will see this and demand a bit extra on that contract.
