Diogo Dalot has backed team-mate Bruno Fernandes to become a Manchester United legend following the impressive start to his Old Trafford career.

Bruno Fernandes is in line to become a Manchester United legend following an impressive start to his United career, as per teammate Diogo Dalot.

The Portuguese arrived from Sporting CP in January and has already seen a brilliant start to his career at Old Trafford.

A series of brilliant individual performances have seen Fernandes named as United’s player of the month and also the Premier League’s player of the month much more recently.

In his nine starts, the 25-year-old has already provided three goals and four assists having become a regular starter for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

And teammate Diogo Dalot believes his compatriot could be a United legend in no time, if he keeps up his form.

“Fernandes is unbelievable, he can be better of course as well. He’s going to learn a lot from this club. Dalot said as h/t by Goal.

“I think he is a massive player to have in this team and he’s going to be a very good player for this club. He’s going to be (a legend), no doubt about that.

“He was the captain at Sporting, of course he’s an experienced player as well, 25 years old, he’s played in Italy, he played in Portugal as well. He knows what he is doing. It’s going to be very good for him.”

Since Fernandes joined the club, United have gone on a winning streak and are unbeaten in any game the Portuguese has started.
