According to reports, Manchester United are worried about the mental and physical pressure being placed on Bruno Fernandes.

The midfielder, 26, has been one of the club’s consistent performers since he joined from Sporting Lisbon in January.

Report from Portuguese outlet O Jogo claim the club feel the Portuguese playmaker is suffering from the strain of being involved in every game and also fear the risk of a burnout could happen.

Though he started our 6-1 defeat against Spurs, but real concerns were raised when he was replaced oat half-time by Fred.

Fernandes has so far scored 10 goals and made eight assists in 17 league games for the Red Devils.
