Bruno Fernandes tipped for key role in persuading Paul Pogba to stay at Man Utd

Watford striker Troy Deeney believes the signing of Bruno Fernandes could play a key role in getting Paul Pogba to stay at Man Utd.

Fernandes has started his Red Devils career in impressive form, already showcasing why United were willing to spend £67million on his talents.

While United are undergoing a rebuilding process under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer though, the future of Pogba remains persistently up for debate.

The Frenchman admitted last summer he was ready for a fresh challenge, and has barely played this season due to injury problems.

With Juventus and Real Madrid both interested in signing Pogba, it looked as though United would face a battle to keep their star man, but Deeney feels things have now changed.

Deeney told the United Stand: "If [Pogba’s] now going, 'Oh, this is the type of player that we’re signing, cool'.

"Now he’s probably looking at it going, 'Okay I can see what’s going on here, me and Bruno can do a madness."

United have splashed out more than £200m since last summer on new additions, and look set to follow that up with another busy transfer window once it reopens.
