Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Bruno Fernandes has the “X Factor” after impressing in the early stages of his Manchester United career.

The Playmaker arrived in January for £68million and has hit the ground running, scoring his first goal for the club against Watford on Sunday.

Fernandes scored his first goal for the club against Watford last weekend and is set to play some sort of role when United play Club Brugge in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday.



Speaking ahead of United’s second leg clash in the Europa League against Club Brugge on Thursday, Solskjaer could not speak highly enough of the newest member of his squad.

He said: “We feel we’ve added some X Factor quality with Bruno.

“The addition of Bruno gives us a bit of a different flavour, he likes to play forward passes and take risks, which a Manchester United player should do.

“His imagination and his overview, picture, is a couple of seconds ahead of many players.

“It is one of his strengths he knows what he wants to do. He can change his mind in a split-second. That composure has been important.

“I think Bruno will only improve by coming here to a stronger league, stronger opponents and stronger teammates, getting used to us.

“We want to develop that x-factor. He’s come in and impressed everyone but we don’t want to put a limit on what he can do.”
