Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes have both been active in bringing the current Manchester United squad closer in the past couple of months, according to a report.

The Red Devils have shown a brilliant turnaround in form recently and are currently on an 11-match unbeaten run after thrashing LASK 5-0 in the Europa League last week.

That equals the undefeated best stretch Solskjaer embarked on after succeeding Jose Mourinho in December 2018 – a time when Man Utd were on their haunches, leading to a variety of personnel changes and a cultural reboot at Old Trafford.

Man Utd’s unbeaten streak has seen them move into fifth in the Premier League table, only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and eight adrift of third-placed Leicester City.

Much of Man Utd’s good form has coincided with the arrival of Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window.

And Bleacher Report claims that the Portuguese midfielder ‘has joined up the dressing room by helping those who do not speak English fluently and helping them converse more easily with the English talkers.’

While captain Maguire organised ‘one night out in particular’ which ‘brought the squad together and has had an impact on the atmosphere therein since.’
