Manchester United have completed the €55 million signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting, with the midfielder penning a five-and-a-half-year contract at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made reinforcements in the engine room a top priority for January.
New Manchester United signing Bruno Fernandes said he has been in love with the club since watching Cristiano Ronaldo play for the Red Devils.
“My love of Manchester United really started when I used to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play and ever since then I have been a big fan of this great club,” Fernandes said in a club statement.
“For me to now play for Manchester United feels incredible, I have worked hard to get to this moment and I can promise the fans that I will give everything for the badge to help bring us more success and trophies.
“I want to thank Sporting for everything they have done for me. It is surreal to hear the nice words that have been said about me from players that used to play for this team.
“A massive thank you to Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] and everyone at Manchester United for the trust they have shown in me and I can’t wait to start to repay that on the pitch.”
