Bruno Fernandes reveals message from Ole Gunnar Solskjær as Man Utd priority transfer outlined



| Last Updated:


Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s most significant contribution to Manchester United as manager may have been Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester United signed Bruno Fernandes in January 2020, when Ole Gunnar Solskjær was pushing for the club to finish in the Premier League top four for the first time since 2018.

His impact was immediate, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists in just 17 games during the rest of the 2019/20 season.

Solskjær was fired from his duty as club manager in November 2021, but speaking to Record, Bruno Fernandes said: “The Icelandic [on Sunday] coach says he spoke to Solskjær, who had sent me a hug.”

Meanwhile, new manager Erik ten Hag has outlined his priorities for the next priority transfer target, with the Dutch manager looking to sign a “top centre-back”.

This is according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims the club will look into a January move, but if that doesn’t happen, they will definitely sign one in the summer.

Further to this, Romano told The United Stand that United are interested in Bayer Leverkusen’s Edmond Tapsoba, but with the German club’s strong league position, a deal in January for the 24-year-old central defender would be “very unlikely”.

Raphaël Varane has been subject to interest from both Bayern Munich and Saudi Arabia and have named their price for the Frenchman, but any move away from Old Trafford in January is unlikely.
