- The full agreement for Bruno Fernandes ’transfer is in place.
- Fernandes is flying into Manchester for medical today.
- The goalscoring midfielder could save Solksjaer’s job and United’s season.
So it looks like they finally got there in the end. For once, footballing genius Ed Woodward did not scupper the deal. And Manchester United has a player who could be a real difference-maker.
With the club only 6-points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the league. Through to the next round of both the FA Cup and Europa League. An absolute nightmare of a season so far could still be saved if this signing works out as hoped.
Man United Needs Fernandes to Hit the Ground Running
There were strong rumors that Fernandes would sign for Manchester United in the summer. He seemed a perfect fit for what the club needed.
Coming off a (/ 28 season where he scored (goals and had) assists , Fernandes seemed like exactly the kind of player that could help give Manchester United a much -needed boost.
As is common for these strange times at Old Trafford, the powers that be decided that the club didn’t need that kind of player at all.
Six months later, they realize that they do.
Solskjaer, Woodward, and maybe even the Glazers, will be praying that he can deliver.
One Last Chance At Redemption
Ironically, this transfer was sealed on the night that CEO Ed Woodward’s home was attacked by disgruntled United fans.
Of course, there is no excuse for this kind of attack on a man’s home.
For once, he should take some credit for getting this deal done. And if it works out, he must continue this positive trend and overhaul the entire structure of the footballing side of the club.
