With the January Transfer Window in full swing, Solskjer will be looking to bolster United's depleted midfield.
Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera left the club last season, Fred has improved since his largely unimpressive debut season, Nemanja Matic is showing significant signs of decline, players like Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata are only being used as rotation players, and Paul Pogba could leave the club in the near future.
Needless to say, even if Solskjaer was able to get more out of his existing midfield players and Pogba was to stay, the squad does need new midfield options. As such, Manchester United reviving their interest in the Portuguese ace Bruno Fernandes is hardly surprising.
But while the transfer may seem sensible on the surface, would it actually work? How would Fernandes fit in at Manchester United? Would his style of play work with the current set of players? Let’s find out.
