Ole Gunnar Solskjer insists that Manchester United’s new boy Bruno Fernandes has the ‘X factor’ after impressing in the early stages of his career in Old Trafford.
The Portuguese midfielder arrived in the Premier League in January and has run wild and proved that he is worth every cent of the £ 68 million in transfer costs.
Fernandes scored his first goal for the club against Watford last weekend and plays a sort of role when United Club Brugge plays on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League final 32 tie.

Speaking before the game, Solskjaer could not speak highly enough about the newest member of his team.
He said: “We feel that we have added some X-factor quality with Bruno.
“The addition of Bruno gives us a slightly different taste. He likes to play forward steps and take risks, which a Manchester United player should do.
‘His imagination and his overview, photo, are a few seconds ahead of many players.
“It is one of his strengths that he knows what he wants to do. He can change his mind in a fraction of a second. That calmness has been important.
“I think Bruno will only improve by coming here to get stronger competition, stronger opponents and stronger teammates and getting used to us.
‘We want to develop that x factor. He came in and impressed everyone, but we don’t want to set any limits on what he can do. “

Luke Shaw joined his manager in the pre-match press conference and, after missing the Europa League final in 2017, wants to taste continental success again.
He added: “It is a huge ambition for me. I was there for the Europa League final and the feeling, although not on the pitch, was a feeling I did not feel and I wanted more of it.
“I wasn’t involved and that’s what pushes me even more to get to this final and others.
‘We have to be in the final and in all competitions until the end. We currently have a lot of confidence.
“We are still in two cup competitions and the competition still has a very high priority.
‘We have a good chance of being in the top four and we have a very good chance in both cup tournaments. We want to win them all. “
