Manager Olé Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted to welcome the Portuguese international to the club. ‘We have been tracking Bruno for many months and everyone here has been tremendously impressed with all his attributes and what he will bring to this team’ the manager said. ‘Most importantly he is a terrific human being with a great personality and his leadership qualities are clear for all to see. Bruno’s goals and assists stats speak for themselves, he will be a fantastic addition to our team and he will help us push on in the second part of the season. The winter break is coming at a perfect time for us to integrate Bruno into the squad and for him to get to know his team-mates.’
Fernandes is expected to make his debut against Wolves on Saturday.
