Dimitar Berbatov has revealed Manchester United may have made a mistake in not signing Bruno Fernandes earlier than they did. But added that the Portuguese wouldn’t have been ready to make a move to Old Trafford in summer.
Fernandes was linked with the Red Devils during the summer transfer window. The deal didn’t materialise, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side didn’t cool their interest in the midfielder and finally signed him this January with a £67million transfer fee.
Since his arrival, Fernandes has enjoyed his playing time with the club, and Berbatov believes that the Portuguese’s move was in time.
Former United player told Mirror Football: “You can argue that the club may have made a mistake by not signing him earlier, but you never know what is going to happen and maybe if they got him earlier he might not have been quite ready.
I think everything happened at the right moment and we can see the result of it now with the way that Fernandes is producing great football.
If Pogba stays then I think their partnership will only get better, you can see they already have something going with the way they look for each other on the pitch and where they are passing.
There is clearly a great future for both of them at United.”
