Sporting CP attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes joined Premier League side Manchester United during the January transfer window.

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola said that the club had no interest in signing the midfielder before he made his move to United.

Fernandes has already impressed at United with having made 4 Premier League appearances in which he has scored and assisted two times as well as two Europa League appearances, in which he has scored one time and one FA Cup appearance.

“I said many times it looks like we are linked with a thousand million players every month. So I don’t know if the agents want to create something to do that,” Guardiola said.

“But I think the club was not in talks with his agent about this player, but they link this guy and a thousand million more.”

“I don’t know what it means ‘my type of player.’ I like defenders too and good headers. I don’t believe too much that these players are perfect for this manager. I think he is an exceptional player that is why Man United bought him,” he added.
