Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s likes to play explosive football with pace a key element, if Bruno Fernandes has found a way to increase his speed, the Red Devils faithful could witness an even more formidable midfielder once the Premier League returns.

It will be an especially enticing prospect with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba also set to return.

One thing is for sure, United will be pushing desperately for the top four spot and with Chelsea having slipped up on several occasions, the Red Devils will have a good chance of catching up with their London rivals.

An even fitter Bruno Fernandes can only help.
