Bruno Fernandes insists that any new players joining him at Manchester United must be hungry for titles after admitting he is desperate to win ‘everything’ at the club.
Fernandes has been a shining light for the Old Trafford outfit since arriving in January, winning the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for February.
The coronavirus lockdown has halted his progress, although when football does eventually return Fernandes is under no illusions about what he desires.

‘I want to win everything. I’m hungry to win everything. I came to Manchester to win, to win titles, league, Champions League, everything,’ Fernandes said in a Q&A with supporters on United’s official website.
‘We know the potential Manchester have, because we are a young team, young players, but we’ve got a lot of quality.
‘It doesn’t matter if we’re young and the others have more experience than us, because we have also experienced players who can help the youngest.
‘The mix we have now and in the future, I don’t know what will happen in the next season, of course Manchester is a big club and normally they buy someone because you are a big club and everyone wants to come here.’

Fernandes’ arrival has coincided with a huge upturn in United’s fortunes on the pitch
And if United do secure more big-name signings, Fernandes is keen to point out that they must share his and the rest of the squad’s desire to win.
‘We already have a big team, but whoever comes needs to come to win,’ he added. ‘Just to focus to win, I want people hungry for titles and everything. I feel this now in the group, everyone wants to win.’
United have endured a topsy-turvy time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but Fernandes’ arrival appears to have steadied the ship and the team are unbeaten since the end of January.
In that time, they have won eight of their 11 matches, moving up to fifth, hot on the heels of Chelsea in the Champions League spots just above them.
