Bruno Fernandes has named Portuguese midfielder Francisco Ramos as the player he’d bring with him to Manchester United.
Fernandes has made a swift impact at United since his arrival in a £67.7 million deal from Sporting in the January transfer window.
The 25-year-old looks set to become a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield as United push for a Champions League place.
But Fernandes has named another Portuguese midfielder as someone who he would want alongside him at Old Trafford.
Francisco Ramos is currently on loan at Santa Clara in the Portuguese top flight but the 25-year-old has played alongside Fernandes for Portugal’s Under-21s.
And in a quickfire Instagram Q&A with his friend and singer, Carolina Deslandes, Fernandes named Ramos as the one player he’d have alongside him for the rest of his career.
‘It is very difficult to choose, because I have a lot of people in the dressing room who are my friend,’ said the United midfielder.
‘Wherever I played… Francisco Ramos.’
Fernandes also opted to snub his new boss Solskjaer when asked to name the coach he would choose to have for the rest of his career.
Instead, United’s latest marquee signing opted to pick Jorge Jesus, who coached Fernandes for a single season at Sporting.
Fernandes also paid tribute to Sporting’s kitman, Paulo ‘Paulinho’ Gama, for giving him an emotional send-off before he joined United.
‘He hugged me to cry and that moved me,’ said Fernandes.
‘Paulinho saw all the last champions and best players who have played for Sporting. Seeing him thrilled to say goodbye to me means a lot to me.’
