Bruno Fernandes admits he’s living the dream at Manchester United after opening his account for Red Devils. The £46million winter signing from Sporting Lisbon bagged his first goal for the Old Trafford club in their 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday afternoon.
Fernandes opened the scoring for United from the penalty spot just before half-time, with second-half strikes from Anthony Martial and Mason Green completing the rout.
Fernandes’ strike completed a stellar a week for the 24-year-old, who bagged an assist in United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday.
And understandably, the Portugal international is over the moon with his contributions over the last week.
“It feels so good,” he said to MUTV after the game. “For me, it’s another dream come true.

Bruno Fernandes on scoring his first goal for Manchester United
“These last few weeks have been amazing for me and the team. We drew against Wolves, but, after that, we had good games, away against Chelsea and home against Watford today, but I’m really happy about the three points and we are [moving] up in the table.”
Fernandes opened his account in front of his family, and added: “I feel happy. My family arrived on Friday, they arrived just in time to see me score.”
The Old Trafford faithful have warmed quickly to Fernandes, who admits he’s felt the love at the Theatre of Dreams.
“I feel good about this,” he said. “The fans are amazing and they give me more confidence to play and be happy when I play.
“But also part of this is from my team-mates. They help me a lot, they give me a lot of confidence, they trust in me and that is the most important for me.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been thoroughly impressed by Fernandes’ performances over the last few weeks, which have reminded of his old Red Devils team-mate Paul Scholes.
“He reminds me of Scholesy as a player but definitely a different type of personality off the pitch,” the Norwegian said of Fernandes earlier this week.
“Against Club Brugge, when he’s on the bench, he walks around, he speaks to the players who start, he helps them, he gives them points.
“And the 10 minutes he played you could see that there’s a difference in our team.
“He’s another conductor and leader and winner. He wants to win. He doesn’t take 99 per cent as good enough and he’s impressed me.
“That’s something you see when you watch him but you don’t know about until you have him in your group. He’s been top class.”
Fernandes and his United team-mates will be back in action on Thursday night, welcoming Belgian giants Club Brugge to Old Trafford for the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie.
