This led him being named Primeira Liga Player of the Year in both 2018 and 2019. In 2018–19, he scored a record of 33 goals in all competitions. This made him him the Portuguese midfielder with the most goals and the midfielder in Europe with the most goals in a single season.

After only a few weeks with the youth side, Fernandes started to play to the first team in Serie B. He played in just over half of the league games during the 2012–13 season. He helped his team to fifth place and the promotion play-offs.[4]

Udinese[change | change source]

In summer 2013, Fernandes signed for Udinese Calcio in a co-ownership deal.[5] He made his debut in Serie A on 3 November. He came on as a second-half substitute. Udinese lost 0–3 at home against Inter Milan.[6]

Sporting CP[change | change source]

On 27 June 2017, after the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, Fernandes joined Sporting CP for five years. This was for a reported fee of €8.5 million plus bonuses. He had a buyout clause of €100 million.[15] He scored four goals in his first five Primeira Liga games. This included two goals in a 5–0 away win against Vitória de Guimarães.[16][17]

The time won 3–2 win against Olympiacos FC.[18] He finished his first season with 16 goals across all competitions. This was second only to Bas Dost.[19]

On 15 May 2018, Fernandes and several of his teammates and coaches were injured following an attack by around 50 Sporting supporters at the club's training ground. This was after the team finished third in the league and did not get to the Champions League qualification stage.[20][21] Despite this, the team still played in the final of the Taça de Portugal the weekend after.[22] Sporting lost against C.D. Aves.[23]

Fernandes was named the Primeira Liga Player of the Year on 6 July 2018.[24] Four days later he signed a new five-year contract with a €100 million release clause.[25] He said first that he was going to leave because the club president Bruno de Carvalho left. He got an improved salary in the process.[26]

Fernandes scored his 23rd competitive goal of the 2018–19 campaign. This was during a 3–1 home win against Portimonense S.C. on 3 March 2019, through a late penalty. He beat António Oliveira's club record for goals by a midfielder in a season. This was set in 1981–82.[27] On 5 May, he scored a hat-trick in an 8–1 away win against Belenenses SAD. He became the highest-scoring Portuguese midfielder in a single season ever, with 31 goals to his name.[28] He scored his 33rd and final goal of the season on 25 May 2019. This was during Sporting's win against FC Porto in the Taça de Portugal final.[29][30] He was named Primeira Liga Player of the Year for the second year, in the 2018–19 season.[31]

He scored seven goals in his first 10 appearances of the 2019–20 season. This included scoring in six matches in a row.[32] This made him the third Sporting player in the 21st century to score in six or more matches in a row, after Mário Jardel and Bas Dost.[33] On 28 November 2019, he scored twice and assisted the other two goals in a 4–0 win against PSV Eindhoven. This made sure Sporting qualified for the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa League.[34]

On 29 January 2020, English club Manchester United agreed with Sporting to buy Fernandes. This was for a fee of up to €80 million (£67.6 million).[35] Fernandes also needed to pass a medical and agree personal terms.[36] The transfer was officially done the day after. The initial fee is around €55 million (£47 million),[37] and up to €25 million (£21 million) in add-ons. Sporting will also get 10% of the profits if United ever sell Fernandes.[38] Fernandes signed a five-and-a-half-year contract.[39]

He played the full 90 minutes of a 0-0 draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.[40] In Manchester United's 2–0 away win over Chelsea on 17 February, he made an assist for the second goal.

This was his European debut for the club.[42] He scored his first goal for Manchester United against Watford on 23 February. This was a penalty in a 3–0 victory at Old Trafford. In this match, he also made an assist for the third goal scored by Mason Greenwood.[43] His first European goal for the club was in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie against Club Brugge at Old Trafford. Fernandes scored a penalty. This helped Manchester United to win 5–0.[44] On 16 March 2020, Fernandes was voted as the Premier League Player of the Month for February.[45] On 30 June 2020, Fernandes scored his first brace (two goals in one match) for the club in a 3–0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion.[46] In June 2020, he won awards for the club and in the Premier League. This included winning the Premier League Player of the Month and Goal of the Month. He became the first player to win both awards at the same time in the Premier League.[47][48] He also became the first Manchester United player to win the Premier League Player of the Month award two months in a row since Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2006–07 season.[49] Bruno Fernandes has scored 8 goals and assisted 7 times in 14 games in his Premier League first season with Manchester United.[50]

Fernandes playing for Portugal at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Fernandes has played for Portugal at five levels. Before he played in the senior team (the main Portugal team), he was captain of the under-21 team. Coach Rui Jorge made him captain.[51]

When he played in Italy, he did not play for Portugal. The national team first chose Fernandes on 28 August 2017. He took the place of Pizzi because he was injured. This was for World Cup qualifiers against the Faroe Islands and Hungary to be played the next month.[52] However, he did not play in either match.[source?]

Fernandes' first World Cup game was on 15 June 2018. He played 66 minutes in a 3–3 group stage draw against Spain. He received a yellow card in this match.[61]

Style of play[change | change source]

Fernandes is an attacking midfielder. He is a direct, energetic playmaker. He can take on defenders and also set the rhythm of play.[62][63] Because he is direct, Fernandes sometimes takes risks. He tries difficult passes to create chances of scoring goals.He often presses the opposition quickly after losing possession.[64] In addition, he is a a good free-kick taker. He likes to shoot from outside the penalty area.[62] His movement off the ball is also important, as he looks to find space to create chances.[62] Fernandes can also play in a deeper central midfield role, or as a second striker.[62]
