Bruno Fernandes value is soaring up after another impressive display in the UEFA Champions League. He settled in quickly at Old Trafford and was instrumental in guiding the Red Devils to a third place finish.
After hitting a milestone of scoring more goals despite being a midfielder in a Man United jersey he aimed a jibe at rival fans by claiming to BT Sports they say penalties do help. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
However, Bruno has proved he is not just a penalty merchant. Against Everton he bagged a brace and sacrificed a hat-trick in favour of Edinson Cavani and it was the same story against Istanbul Basaksehir as he sacrificed a hat-trick in favour of Marcus Rashford by allowing him to score from the spot.
By continuing with this fine form the Portuguese is creating 3.3 chances per game according to data from Whoscored, the joint highest in Europe. He is already topping the Premier League creativity charts ahead of Kevin De Bruyne, Mo Salah. His value is already soaring despite United getting him for a purchase of £47m which is to rise to £67m based on add ons. He is already worth more than £100m. What a gem to have in your team!

The 26-year-old has never gone more than two games in a row without scoring or giving an assist. Since the start of the 2017/18 season he has been involved in 71 goals and 48 assists in 138 games. This means he has been directly involved in a goal every 101 minutes from midfield. He is indeed a beast.
Bruno Fernandes has proved he is on the verge of conquering Europe. I wonder where United would have been had there signed him in the summer of the 2019 season. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
