Manchester United has just managed to secure the services of Portuguese midfielder, Bruno Fernandez. However, club legend Gary Neville felt that was not enough for the Red Devils. He urged the club to recruit one more player who operates on the front lines.
The title is indeed not the target of Manchester United, because they are being realistic. In other words, the club nicknamed the Red Devils are aware that their squad is not good enough to compete in the Premier League title this season.
The main target of Manchester United is the last four major standings with the aim of being able to appear in the European Champions League next season. It’s just that, until now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops have never been able to penetrate the 4th position.
Many consider that the Red Devils do require newer ammunition. Solskjaer had argued about that opinion. But in the end the Norwegian coach could not argue anymore after Pogba and McTominay were forced to pull over because of injury.
As a result the club is active in the transfer market this winter. The opportunity they use to bring Bruno Fernandez. The Portuguese midfielder was bought at a price of 55 million pounds or the equivalent of 824 Billion Rupiahs from Sporting Lisbon.
Bruno Fernandez is indeed a good recruit, he was welcomed. But the presence of the Portugal national team midfielder does not necessarily make Gary Neville satisfied. Because Manchester United is considered to still need other players, especially in the striker position.
This is related to the attack line crisis experienced by the Red Devils following the recent Marcus Rashford injury.
“I think Manchester United should buy two players in the transfer market this time. Let’s wait until the exchange is closed. They still need a striker that I see. Moreover, Marcus Rashford will not recover in the near future,” said Neville as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
If this is the case, Manchester United must move quickly. Because the transfer market this winter will soon be closed. Solksjaer must be realistic, an additional Bruno Fernandez alone is not enough to reach their target at the end of the season.
