"I was the first one to tell him [Bruno Fernandes] he should go to England," explained Luis Nani to The Athletic.

"And if he decides to go to England, if he can choose Manchester United it would be the best thing for him.

"That was funny because a couple of months later when I went to Orlando I saw the news and I texted him because I was seeing Man City and Man United and Tottenham were fighting for him and I said, ‘If you have to go, you choose Man United! It’s the best!'"

Sure enough, Bruno ended up moving to Old Trafford and made an instantaneous impact both on and off the field.

The Portuguese remains an integral part of the squad, scoring four goals and assisting thrice in 11 Premier League appearances this season.

Nani, meanwhile, turns 35 on Wednesday and is currently playing in the MLS. The Orlando City captain has scored 10 goals and provided seven assists in 28 appearances this term.
