#1 Bruno Fernandes (Sporting CP)

5 players Manchester United can target to replace Paul Pogba

And now we talk about the player probably every Man United fan has been pining to see in the famous red shirt. Bruno Fernandes has developed into a phenomenal player, scoring 32 goals and registering 18 assists in all competitions for Sporting CP and helped Portugal win the UEFA Nations League this summer.

Every Red Devils supporter must certainly have checked him out on Youtube, and his stats say pretty much the truth about how he plays. He is capable of functioning in deeper positions on either flank as well as in the center.

Fernandes provides 3.9 long balls per game and 1.9 crosses per game. He also notches 2.9 key passes per game and the fact that he gets fouled 2.2 times on an average every game tells the kind of menacing midfielder that he is. He also takes 3.4 shots on an average per game.

Bruno Fernandes is available for a bargain price of £55m and United are presently the only club interested in his signature.
If they make haste and rope him in, the Red Devils could have their own Frank Lampard to watch and savour.
