Bruno Fernandes has praised one of his Portuguese international teammates who would be a perfect fit at Manchester United.

Following fantastic form for Manchester United towards the end of last season, Bruno Fernandes kicked off his 2024 European Championship preparations with two goals against Finland on Tuesday evening.

Joining the field for the second half alongside club teammate Diogo Dalot, Fernandes scored a beautiful outside-of-the-box finish to hand a 3-0 lead to Portugal before a calmly taken finish slotted in their fourth and final of the evening.

After the game, the United captain took time to praise 21-year-old right winger Francisco Conceição, who assisted both of his goals on the night.

“Francisco had a very good game; he is an electric player, and without the ball, he works a lot,” Fernandes told Mais Futebo. “In reacting to loss he is very quick and is very well positioned.

“You can see that he was trained by his father, who cares a lot about these details. We want players who can provide different qualities so we can be complete as a group.”

Fernandes refers to Conceição’s father because his dad, Sérgio Conceição, is the current manager of his domestic club, FC Porto.

Conceição has been fantastic for Porto this season, playing 43 times and scoring eight goals and eight assists.

Valued at just under £13 million by Transfermarkt, Conceição would make a perfect signing at United. With the potential sales of Antony and Facundo Pellistri this summer, United will need a right winger who can compete with Amad Diallo.

Conceição is left-footed, like Amad, and likes providing assists for others just as much as scoring goals himself. This would suit players such as Rasmus Højlund and Fernandes, who play their game centrally.
