Hargreaves compares Bruno Fernandes to Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has compared Bruno Fernandes to Manchester City talisman Kevin de Bruyne. 

Fernandes signed for United during the January transfer window for a reported fee of £47m from Sporting Lisbon. The midfielder has been impressive since joining the Red Devils and yet again produced another brilliant performance as he helped his side register 5-0 win over LASK in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

"Every time he gets the ball he makes something happen. He’s on fire, he created five chances in that first half," he said.

"Like de Bruyne, he plays at his own speed, he’s never rushed, finds pockets of space. He just has a feel of when to do things," he added. 

Since his arrival in January, the Portuguese has netted three goals while providing four assists for United in his nine appearances.
