BRUNO FERNANDES named little-known Portuguese midfielder Francisco Ramos as the one player he would love to join him at Manchester United.

Fernandes finally secured his dream move to Old Trafford in January, joining on a £55million deal, so far scoring three goals with four assists in his nine appearances.

He has added a much needed sense of aggression to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Champions League chasing side.

But Fernandes revealed his former Portugal youth team-mate Ramos – now playing for Santa Clara on loan from Vitoria – is the one player he would add to strengthen United even more.

He told Carolina Deslandes on Instagram: "It is very difficult to choose, because I have a lot of locker room people who are my friend.

"Wherever I played? Francisco Ramos."

Fernandes' progress under Solskjaer was halted as the coronavirus pandemic forced football to be suspended indefinitely.

But the 25-year-old said Jorge Jesus, the current Flamengo boss, is his most influential manager.

Jesus spent spent a season with Fernandes at Sporting, having signed him from Sampdoria in 2017, a move that kick-started the playmaker's career.

Despite the lack of time under Solskjaer in a United shirt, the Portuguese international revealed winning the league is his ultimate Old Trafford ambition.


He said on his targets as a United player: "To be champion of a league. In this case in the Premier League.

"Of course I would like to win the European or the World Cup.

"Everyone has ambitions, but mine is to win the Premier League "
