Bruno Fernandes has finally spilled the beans on what CR7 told him about Manchester United.
He said, “I’m a Cristiano Ronaldo fan and he’s a player I’ve always followed.
“When Cristiano burst on to the scene here in Manchester, he spent a good chunk of his early career here and enjoyed so much success.
“That’s why it was a dream of mine to play for Manchester United and I’m very pleased to be here because it’s a childhood dream come true.
“I think any player who joins Manchester United wants to win everything; I want to win every competition that Manchester United compete in.
“I’m an ambitious player who wants success and I want to win every game in every competition we’re in.”
“I didn’t speak to [Ronaldo] before coming but did after my arrival.
“I know some people asked Cristiano what he thought of me and what I was like as a player and a person.
“I know he spoke highly of me and gave me a good reference, so I sent him a message after to thank him for his kind words.”
“I’m a person who demands a lot from myself and always want more and to do better,” said Fernandes.
“That’s why, regardless of the transfer fee, I wanted to keep improving and be a better player.”
