Fernandes’s impact since his €55 move from sporting Lisbon to the Old Trafford can’t be overlooked as he has fitted into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side perfectly.
The Portuguese international has netted three goals and provided four assists in nine appearances for the Red Devils.
While, Paul Pogba has been out with a knee injury, earlier in the season and has not played since the 26th of December 2018, but he is recovering and ready to return to training after once football activities resume.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford with the Portuguese midfielder tagged as a possible replacement.

On-loan Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has revealed in an interview that the Red Devils are set for greatness with the combination of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the middle of the park for United.
“He is working hard to get back to fitness and imagine when we have Pogba and Bruno in the midfield, then you will see a different team — [Marcus] Rashford coming back also. Manchester United is going to be great again, winning games week in, week out. He’s [Pogba] a great player and it’s going to be a privilege to play with him. Bruno is a fantastic player.”
“I played with him in 2013-14 at Udinese. We’ve not seen the best of him yet in the Premier League,” Ighalo said in an interview on Twitter with journalist Juliet Bawuah.
“Once Bruno Fernandes settles down in England you will see what that guy can do. He has vision, he wants the ball always. He can shoot, he can score goals, he is very intelligent. “He added.
“Before the ball comes, he is a step ahead to know what he wants to do. In times to come you are going to see what he can do in the Premier League, even better than what he is doing now.”
The former Watford striker has also been in fine form since his loan move from Chinese league, Shanghai Shenhua, scoring four goals in eight appearances for United.
