Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba will cause Premier League defence “all sorts of problems” when they are partnered up in midfield for Manchester United, according to Lee Sharpe.
Fernandes joined the Red Devils in the last week of the transfer window from Sporting Lisbon, while Pogba has missed much of the season through injury.
Pogba‘s future is still up in the air after admitting over the summer that he was ready for a “fresh challenge” away from Old Trafford.
However, Sharpe insists the pair will be a forced to be reckoned with if Man Utd can get them both on the pitch together.
“I think they [Fernandes-Pogba] would have a good partnership,” Sharpe told Sky Sports News.
“You would have to play them with someone who could do the defensive work. Fernandes is a natural forward-thinking midfielder.
“Going forward, I think they can cause all sorts of problems between them. It could be just what United need. It’s been really disappointing with no Pogba this season, I think they’ve really missed him.
“He’s got charisma on the pitch and the creativity he brings to the game – there’s a level of arrogance and ability that brings everyone up to Paul Pogba’s level.”
