‘I don’t know if Fernandes and Pogba can play together,’ says Dimitar Berbatov.

Dimitar Berbatov is intrigued to see Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the same Manchester United team.

Fernandes was Premier League player of the month for February after making a massive impact following his January transfer.

Pogba was due to return to training this week after a long injury lay-off, with the Frenchman said to be very keen to link up with United’s new attacking midfielder.

‘I don’t know if Fernandes and Pogba can play together,’ Berbatov said in his Betfair column.

‘Fernandes has quickly become an influential player for United. I’m pleased and impressed by how well integrated into the team he’s become in a short space of time.

‘His teammates are looking for him with the ball because they know he can create magic. He looks happy to be playing for United. I really hope he continues in this form.

‘As a fan of Paul Pogba, I want him to stay at United, I think it would be best for him, but I am curious to see how he will link up with Fernandes.

‘They’re similar players, both intelligent enough to think three steps ahead when they’re on the ball.

‘Sometimes footballers are too similar to play together. But I hope that’s not the case here because, with Fernandes and Pogba in the same midfield, United could be a very imaginative team that would surprise opponents next season or even sooner.’
