bruno fernandes united’s saviour?

THE DEAL! This move dragged on since last summer, but United eventually agreed to splash out £47 million for the class Portugal playmaker! The Red Devils could pay up to £67.6 million if he hits certain targets, though – like firing the club to Champions League footy, a trophy or winning the Ballon d’Or! MIDFIELD GOAL KING! In 2019, Fernandes scored more goals domestically and in Europe than any other midfielder in Europe’s top ten leagues! In fact, only six players in total scored more goals than him during that period, and they were all forwards – Lewandowski, Mbappe, Messi, Benzema, Sterling and Aguero! ULTIMATE CAM! Fernandes is the ideal No.10 because he delivers a serious goal threat! In the last two and a half years, he’s scored or created 67 goals in the Portuguese…

euro new boys to watch!

ERLING HAALAND RB Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund £17 million Haaland’s impact at Dortmund has been as explosive as it was at Salzburg! His first seven goals came in just eight shots, and just over two hours of game time! Getting him for less than £20 million could be one of the best bargains ever – although his release clause means he can be snapped up in 2021 for £63m!

PACO ALCACER Borussia Dortmund to Villarreal £19.3 million Haaland’s arrival meant Dortmund had to sell…
