Bruno Fernandes reacts to Anthony Martial's confirmed Sevilla loan move
Influential Manchester United man Bruno Fernandes has reacted to Anthony Martial’s loan move to Sevilla.
The Frenchman has joined the La Liga side on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
The Europa League side has no buy option in the deal so United’s number nine will return to Manchester at the end of the season.
But with a new permanent manager due to be appointed, time will tell whether Martial is still at the club when pre-season starts in the summer.
There is every chance the French international has played his last game in a Manchester United shirt. United legend Rio Ferdinand doesn’t believe there is way back for Martial at Old Trafford.
If he has played his last game then the 26-year-old’s last appearance for the Reds was a telling one, as he combined with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani to help Marcus Rashford score a last-gasp winner against West Ham.
Another of Martial’s United teammates Bruno Fernandes has already commented on the former Monaco man’s move.
United’s number 18 posted a heartfelt story on his Instagram citing the ‘special connection’ the pair had both on and off the pitch.
The Portuguese international assisted Martial’s only goal so far this season and that came back in October against Everton.
In 62 games played together, Martial and Fernandes have combined to score 12 goals (5 from Fernandes, 7 from Martial).
With Sevilla only four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, Martial will be hoping to fire Julen Lopetegui’s side to league and Europa League glory.
Fernandes will no doubt be hoping his friend shines in Spain and comes back to Manchester United motivated to reproduce his 2019-20 campaign which saw him score 23 goals and make 12 assists from 48 games.
