Bruno Fernandes has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo regularly asks him about the latest developments at Manchester United. Fernandes followed in the footsteps of Ronaldo by joining United from Sporting Lisbon.
Ronaldo left United for Real Madrid back in 2009 before moving on to Juventus. But he clearly still has a huge affection for the Old Trafford outfit.
When asked whether he sounded out Ronaldo ahead of his move to United, Fernandes revealed to the club’s official website: “I spoke with him after, not before. I said before – Manchester, for me, was the dream team.
“I always wanted to play for this team and it doesn’t matter who can talk about it – bad or good, I will come. It was my dream to play in the Premier League,’ Fernandes added. ‘I have the choice to come to Manchester United and it was two dreams in one. It was perfect.
“Of course, I spoke with Cristiano after and he spoke very well about the club. I spoke with him some days ago, again. Every time I speak with him, he asks me how Manchester is and if everything is okay. Everyone knows he spent a lot of time in Manchester and he has consideration for the club. He likes the club, I think he won his first Ballon d’Or here, so it’s a club who’ve marked him, for sure.”
