After being linked with Manchester United all summer, Bruno Fernandes has baffled Cristiano Ronaldo by not leaving Sporting Lisbon to better his playing career.
United failed to make an official approach for Fernandes despite being incessantly linked with the player as reports indicated that they were unhappy with how he loses possession frequently. Tottenham were interested in a move for the Portugal international but instead opted to sign Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso.
In an interview with TVI, Ronaldo revealed that he was baffled by Fernandes transfer situation, "In the national team you have Cancelo, Bruno Fernandes, who nobody knows why he doesn't leave. In the national team, you have a lot of talent, so I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
"Possibly this new generation will be the best at the talent level, but that's not enough. They have to want to. I have spoken to him. Positive, I'm a captain who wants to help and be helped. The atmosphere in the national team is spectacular.
"The last few years have been the most enjoyable, both because they want to learn and because there is this. The most responsible for this is Fernando Santos and the president of the FPF."
