One of the frustrating parts of Manchester United’s season has been that injuries have prevented this team showing it’s full potential.
We are all grateful to have seen Bruno Fernandes in action for the club. But we have not been able to see him in action alongside top goalscorer Marcus Rashford.
If they can hit it off, United could be a real force. Rashford is excited to link up with Fernandes too.
Speaking in an Instagram Live with Bleacher Report, reported by SkySports, Rashford was asked about linking up with Fernandes.
Rashford had a lot to say. He gushed: “He’s creative, he’s forward-thinking, he always wants to play the ball forward and create opportunities.
“It’s going to be good to play with him, hopefully we can have some good times. He’s got such a positive attitude, the vibe he brings to the team is just positive.
“Even when he does lose the ball or makes a mistake, he’s always running, working hard to win it back and that definitely rubs off on the other players. He’s had a positive impact so hopefully he carries that on.”

Rashford was also asked about potentially linking up with England teammate Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford.
Sancho is linked to United on a daily basis, with the Irish Independent reporting this week that the Dortmund winger has already made up his mind to join the club.
Rashford has added more fuel to the fire by lauding his potential new clubmate.
He said: “I think our link-up play would be good. Sancho is a great player, he’s like the new generation of player. He’s exciting to watch him become the player he is developing into. Hopefully we can all play together, that would be good.
“Sancho plays off the cuff, he’s creative, imaginative, and those are the things that you need to do well in this generation.”
We are going to have to be patient on that front. It certainly seems as though a move is lining up, but money talks.
In this market, there are no certainties either. Hopefully Sancho and United’s joint willpower eventually will force it through.
