Paul Scholes Says Bruno Fernandes Manchester United Transfer Could Be Closer


Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has suggested the Bruno Fernandes transfer could be closer following the Red Devils’ 2-0 home defeat to Burnley on Wednesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had another miserable evening as they put in a poor performance against Sean Dyche’s men, putting them on a run of just two wins from their last seven games.

United haven’t been helped by all the bad luck they’ve had with injuries this season, with Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford all big misses for Solskjaer.

Still, it’s a worry that this is the squad that Solskjaer is left with despite therefore much investment in the transfer market in recent years, and Scholes thinks the result might actually help kick the club into gear in terms of bringing in the signings that are therefore badly needed this January.

“That performance tonight might do him [Solskjaer] a favour in the transfer market,” Scholes said, as quoted by the Metro.

“It might spur the club on to spend that few extra million on the players they’re looking at like Bruno Fernandes.
