Will Manchester United be able to hold on to Bruno Fernandes?

Bruno Fernandes has been nothing short of sensational since making his debut for Manchester United

The Portuguese international has quickly become indispensable at Old Trafford. What he has produced since his arrival is unreal, averaging a goal or an assist nearly every game.

The manner in which he’s playing is also improving. Bruno carries himself with a swagger on the pitch that tends to lift his teammates and keep the opposition on their toes.

When the Portuguese Magnifico gets the ball, everyone is on high alert, his teammates on the move, the opposition wary, and fans on the edge of their seats. You understand this when you see him produce moments like the strike in midweek vs Istanbul.

He, inevitably, always delivers. Of course, Manchester United signed him because of how good a player he already was, but not even they could have foreseen him being this instrumental and explosive immediately.

Such is his impact and importance that he has already captained the club, and he’s only been around since February.

However, should Fernandes carry on with this level of performance consistently throughout his time at Old Trafford, then Manchester United could have a problem holding on to him.

Fernandes seems to be a naturally competitive character, never one to settle for a draw or loss, always looking to win. This will naturally include a thirst for silverware, and should United fail to win substantial trophies in the near future, it could see them lose their new talisman.

Historically, teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich tend to take an interest in players of his calibre, and the prospect of him being poached by one of these clubs is very real.

Will United be able to hold on to Fernandes if he keeps up like this? Only time will tell, but the Red Devils will need to build around him and compete at the elite levels to keep him because that’s where a player like him belongs.
