Luke Shaw has revealed he is fascinated to see how Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba’s partnership grows in Manchester United training.

Pogba had to miss the most part of the season because of the ankle injury, while Fernandes joined the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window.

Now, as the Premier League is set to resume after being suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, the pair will be finally seen playing together.

And Shaw is excited to see the partnership of the two midfielders. Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “[Bruno]’s been so important, with the chances he’s created, the goals he’s scored and, hopefully, there’s still much more to come from him.

I’m sure he’s still settling into the Premier League to an extent, which makes what he’s done all the more impressive.

He was paired with Paul in a small training group last week, which people saw on the videos, and we saw flashes of what they were capable of.

The coaches have switched it up so it’s not just them on the same team and it’s quite nice to see them battling against each other – they’ve already had some great games against each other – but, personally, I’m really looking forward to seeing them line up together.

They’re probably two of the best midfielders in the [Premier League] right now, I’d say, so it’s going to be fascinating to see them play together.”

Fernandes also admitted he is looking forward to playing alongside World Cup winner Pogba.

“Yes of course [I am excited], I think Paul is one of the best players in Manchester and in the world. He was injured for a lot of time. The opportunity to play side to side with him is fantastic because you want to play with the best players you can.” he said.
