Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes has revealed the role that Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo played in his big money move from Sporting Lisbon to the Premier League during the January transfer window in 2020. Bruno Fernandes moved from Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal to Manchester United for an initial fee of £47m last year and his signing has been an inspired one.

Bruno Fernandes has been able to transform Manchester United from Premier League alsorans to genuine title contenders. In an exclusive interview with NBC, Bruno Fernandes said that he spoke to Cristiano Ronaldo before making the move from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United since he knows the club better than him. Cristiano Ronaldo was already a world beater during his time at Manchester United before he signed for Real Madrid in a then world-record deal worth £80m in the summer of 2019. Ronaldo spent six hugely successful years at Manchester United and also won his first Ballon d’Or trophy at the club. His trophy haul at Manchester United includes three Premier League titles, the 2007/08 Champions League title and many more.

Bruno Fernandes disclosed that Cristiano Ronaldo gave him an advice about joining Manchester United and that they talked about the club and how good it would be for him. Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo are teammates with the Portuguese national team. He told Bruno Fernandes to go and please the Manchester United fans and that they would love him. Bruno Fernandes certainly listened to the advice from Cristiano Ronaldo as he has made a fantastic start to his career at Manchester United. He has scored 15 goals and added five assists in 25 appearances for the Red Devils this season and he would be keen to add to his tally when Manchester United take on Burnley in a rescheduled league game on Tuesday night.
