Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has outlined his next objectives. Fernandes joined the Red Devils in January from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon. The midfielder has been a revelation for United, scoring 12 goals and providing eight assists in his debut season.
The Portuguese has continued that run of form into the new campaign, scoring two goals and providing two assists in four appearances.
Upon his arrival to the Premier League, Fernandes described his move to Old Trafford as “a dream come true.”
And after ticking off another of his career goals, the 25-year-old has turned his attention to winning trophies and becoming an inspiration to aspiring footballers.
Fernandes revealed those desires on an Instagram story which had a checklist of targets, which had one uncrossed.

The final goal read: “Inspiring new generation of players and winning titles.”
Fernandes’ revealing of his goals came after a few days after he rubbished suggestions of a heated conversation between himself and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the half-time interval of their 6-1 loss to Tottenham.
“There’s been a lot of speculation about that,” he told Sport TV after Portugal’s victory over Sweden on Wednesday.
“First it was a discussion with team-mates, as it did not stick, it was a discussion with only one team-mate (Victor Lindelof), as it did not stick now, it is the discussion with Solskjaer.

“I believe it is a way to destabilise the group. What was said is in no way true.
“I was replaced at half-time, it is true, by technical option. The coach told me that the game was almost over and that we would have a lot of games ahead of us. Got it. I was not satisfied but said nothing that could harm the group.”
He added: “If anyone wants to cause a conflict within Manchester it’s not me nor any teammate.
“They are outsiders, they want to create a bad atmosphere in the dressing room and they will not succeed, because the group is united and is focused on giving an important answer already in Newcastle.
Fernandes and his Manchester United team-mates will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, travelling to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle.
United will go into the match on the back of an embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Tottenham, which has heaped a huge amount of pressure on Solskjaer’s shoulders.
“It was obviously everyone’s fault, it wasn’t mine or a teammate’s or another’s,” Fernandes said of United’s mauling by Spurs.
“It wasn’t the coach’s fault, the coach is the same, the tactics are the same, the players are the same, so we can’t blame anyone but everyone in this case.”
