Bruno Fernandes Manchester United

Aaron Wan-Bissaka says Bruno Fernandes has made a smooth start at Manchester United thanks to the club’s Spanish contingent.

Portugal midfielder Fernandes is set to make his second United appearance at Chelsea on Monday night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side return to action following their winter break.

Fernandes – who Solskjaer described as a “conductor” before the Premier League trip to Stamford Bridge – impressed on his debut two weeks ago when United drew 0-0 with Wolves at Old Trafford.

The 25-year-old, signed from Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth an initial £46.6million, has since got to know his new team-mates at United’s training camp at Marbella with the help of David De Gea and Juan Mata.

“I think he (Fernandes) has settled in right,” Wan-Bissaka told the official United website.

“He’s got a few of the Spanish players looking after him and we’re just looking forward to what he brings to the team.”

 

 

The United players had a week off after the Wolves game before heading to the Costa del Sol.

The Red Devils are six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot, but have beaten Frank Lampard’s side twice this season.

They won 4-0 at Old Trafford on the Premier League’s opening weekend in August and 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in a Carabao Cup tie in October.

“It felt good, after the week off we had,” Wan-Bissaka said of the trip to Spain.

“It’s good to be out in the sun and to regroup with the team.

“I think it was needed, with the amount of games we’d been playing. (It’s) something that helped a lot.”
