Bruno Fernandes' Price Continuously Rising on Football Index

Bruno Fernandes' Unrivalled Form

Bruno Fernandes has transformed Manchester United ever since he signed in the January transfer window. The former Sporting Lisbon man has managed a goal and/or assist on every start for his new club, totalling a record of three goals and three assists in eight appearances already.

It's rare to see new players revamp an entire squad and improve the results board so quickly, but with Fernandes, everything has changed. Frowns have turned to smiles, boos have turned to cheers, results have changed to wins and clean sheets, and each player across the pitch is blossoming.

Now, the creative midfielder's price on Football Index is continuing to rise, as his partnership with Anthony Martial continues to blossom ahead of a potential stellar partnership with Paul Pogba.

Fernandes forcing United towards top four and cup success

Since the 25-year-old joined United on January 30, the Red Devils have increased their record to 10 games unbeaten since their embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Burnley at Old Trafford, scoring 17 times and conceding just two since he put pen to paper.

Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future looks much brighter and United are well on course for Champions League football and perhaps a trophy as well. Fernandes' direct involvement in six goals thus far have helped United into the round of 16 of the Europa League and to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, both of which they are favourites to progress in.

At the same time, United are just three points off Chelsea in fourth and two ahead of sixth and seventh in fifth, and fifth could be a direct route to Champions League football after Manchester City's ban.

Fernandes' price has not stopped rising throughout January and since he joined his new club. Now, the Portugal international is at £9.53 with Football Index, a £1.53 increase since last week and an almighty £4.53 increase since he first put pen to paper in Manchester.

United are perhaps on course to win another Europa League title with the draw against Austrian side LASK being a clearer passage to the quarter-finals than most routes. At the same time, either Inter Milan or strong contenders Getafe will head out in this round, whilst Arsenal and Ajax have already exited the competition.

The FA Cup is also another potential trophy for United, with their trip to Norwich City certainly the easiest draw from the bunch considering their form this season. Their noisy neighbours are still clear favourites, but if there is anything the Red Devils have done this season, it's beat Man City.

Champions League football also looks like a real chance for the club, after looking doomed towards the end of 2019. Now, with this and two promising cup runs, Fernandes' price is just going to keep on rising.

Will the return of Paul Pogba increase Fernandes' price?

Multiple reports have suggested that the impact of Fernandes - which has forced the rise of United this month - has made Pogba make a U-turn on his United career. As time went on, his mysterious injury continued to raise questions on his dedication to the club, and it was looking very likely that he would leave.

Perhaps the Frenchman will reconsider his future with United, but regardless, it does seem as if Pogba could return soon, with Solskajer stating he is set to join first-team training soon.

Now, Fernandes and Pogba could form a stellar creative partnership in the centre for United. Last season, the ex-Juventus man bagged 13 Premier League goals, alongside his nine assists - Fernandes already as three goals and three assists.

Together, his and Pogba's statistics will surely only increase, combining their genius minds and wizard-like abilities with the form of Martial up top to create more and more for United each week.

As mentioned, the Portuguese is priced at £9.53 on Football Index and could be set for another rise when Pogba returns alongside him in midfield.
