Bruno Fernandes has earned the praise of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after another impressive show during the Manchester United 3-0 win over Watford.
The signing in January brought another man from the game into the picture, scoring his first goal for the club in what was an important result for his team, which climbed to fifth place in the Premier League position.
Fernandes arrived for an initial fee of £ 44.6 million, which could go up to £ 67.8 million if a number of goals are achieved, and Solskjaer believes the club has achieved a good deal for the Portuguese midfielder.

He told me BBC after the game: ‘Bruno Fernandes is faster than he seems. Very excited by having him inside. He has arrived, has given everyone a boost and wants to play a game. Great games are now coming.
“We have a good deal in today’s market. Some players take the time to warm up, but he immediately felt that confidence. “
He added: “He always wants the ball, he wants to lead the game. I am very satisfied with him. He did something to the crowd. He shows the characteristics of a Manchester United player. He is a great addition to the team. “
Manchester United’s interest in the 25-year-old began last summer, although they could not make a deal with Sporting Lisbon.
After a disappointing first half of the season, the club decided to go back to Fernandes during the transfer window in January and they could get their man.
Life in Manchester started well for the midfielder, who has so far been the man of the game in all three of his United games.
His performances have even made comparisons with Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes by his new manager.

The Red Devils reached fifth place in the league after their 3-0 win over the Hornets thanks to goals from Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.
But it was Fernandes’ 42nd minute penalty that would have pleased the public the most, and it is hoped that his presence will inspire Manchester United to qualify for next year’s Champions League.
After scoring his first goal for the club, Fernandes told the BBC: “This is the day every player wants. I feel happy to score, I feel happy to win the game.
“We’ve all done our best and we’ve all earned the win. I just have to help the team, it’s what I want to do, it’s what I have to do. I hope Martial also scores more goals, like he did tonight. ”
