Subject to a medical and a complete agreement on personal terms, Bruno Fernandes was yesterday announced as a new Manchester United player.
The Sporting CP captain joins Ole Gunnar’s side as the first signing of this winter season, but, having already featured for the Portuguese giants in the Europa League, can he play for the 2016/17 cup winners?
Yes, he can.
UEFA already announced it had decided to remove the "cup-tied" rule from all European competitions.
This means that a player could play for two different clubs in the group stage and the knockout rounds of the Champions League, or the Europa League, in the same season.
With injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, this will come as a boost for Ole’s United, as Bruno has already proved he’s a net-finder in the competition, with five goals in 449 minutes.
