The 25-year-old has quickly become a fan favourite at United, with three goals and four assists already to his name.
The Portuguese forced through a move from Lisbon to the Premier League giants, who he has dreamed of playing for ever since he was a young boy.
Speaking to Channel 11, the midfielder said: “Manchester was a dream club. My brother was a Barcelona fan, I was United.
“My father worked in Switzerland, we went to a sports store.”
“He bought the coat for Barcelona and me for Manchester United,” Fernandes added.
“At the time I dreamed, of course, but I played for the youths of Boavista, it was a completely different reality.
“Now I want to make the most of it to leave a mark here.”
