Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Manchester United may have made a mistake in not signing Bruno Fernandes earlier.

Manchester United had the chance to sign Fernandes during the summer transfer window but waited until January to sign the Portuguese midfielder.

Since joining Manchester United in January, the club is yet to taste defeat with Fernandes on the pitch.

Berbatov told Daily Mirror: “You can argue that the club may have made a mistake by not signing him earlier, but you never know what is going to happen and maybe if they got him earlier he might not have been quite ready.

“I think everything happened at the right moment and we can see the result of it now with the way that Fernandes is producing great football.

“If Pogba stays then I think their partnership will only get better, you can see they already have something going with the way they look for each other on the pitch and where they are passing.

“There is clearly a great future for both of them at United.”
