Former Manchester United player Lee Sharpe would like to see a Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba midfield partnership at the club.

Manchester United just added an attack-minded midfielder to their ranks in Bruno Fernandes. They already have a creative marauding midfielder on the books in Paul Pogba.

Although it remains to be seen how much longer the latter will be staying at the club. Former player Lee Sharpe feels that a Fernandes Pogba partnership may be exactly what the Red Devils need.

Speaking to Sky Sports it could turn out to be good.

He said:

“I think they [Fernandes-Pogba] would have a good partnership.”

“You would have to play them with someone who could do the defensive work.”

“Fernandes is a natural forward-thinking midfielder.”

“Going forward, I think they can cause all sorts of problems between them.”

“It could be just what United need.”

“It’s been really disappointing with no Pogba this season, I think they’ve really missed him.”

“He’s got charisma on the pitch and the creativity he brings to the game.”

“There’s a level of arrogance and ability that brings everyone up to Paul Pogba’s level.”
