Bruno Fernandes is preparing to change his approach as he believes that his Premier League opponents will start to learn how he plays.

The Portuguese international impressed at United since his move from Sporting Lisbon in the winter transfer window, and has shown that he could be the player to make Paul Pogba obsolete.

There is hope that Pogba may even stay on this summer due to the financial impact of the coronavirus on transfer budgets, and the two of them would team up well with United’s most talented midfielder, Scott McTominay.

“My idea for the next few years is doing better than I have until now,” said Fernandes.

“For me, in games it’s not good enough, because now is maybe the most difficult part.

“The players start to recognise your game, start to know how you move, how you pass, how you shoot and the things become difficult now.

“So now I need to improve more and to work more and understand more the teams who I play against because they will understand me better.

“But I need to be prepared to understand better the difficulties they can have.

“My vision of coming to Manchester United is that I’m at one of the best clubs in the world, for me, the best club in England.”

United will be back in action from mid-June if Project Restart is not derailed in the coming weeks. Clubs are returning to full contact training after introductory sessions, and Pogba is now fit following surgery that he elected to undergo in winter.

Striker Marcus Rashford is also able to resume training after he recovered from a stress fracture in his back, and Odion Ighalo’s loan move has been extended until the end of the year, meaning United can focus elsewhere in the transfer market.
