Bruno Fernandes can help Manchester United Title challengers for next season, fans have been told
Bruno Fernandes can help to make Manchester United title challengers in 2020-21, claims Dimitar Berbatov.
Manchester United put an impressive run together at the back end of the season and managed to get themselves back inside the top four spots, winning the most points in the Premier League out of the top clubs since the arrival of Fernandes.
And with reports that a few new signings could arrive in the summer, Berbatov believes United are capable of challenging for that Premier League title next season, with a few minor tweaks required.
The former Red Devils striker told Betfair: “By default, my opinion is United should be challenging for the title, even when going through difficult periods.
“It’s been a challenging few years, but the fact remains that United need to be challenging for the title. They need to improve again to challenge Man City and Liverpool next season, but they can do it.
“Every season is different and has its unique ups and downs, the teams you expect don’t always end up doing well, but with United you always expect them to be title contenders, especially if they make some signings.”
Berbatov added: “The signing of Bruno Fernandes lifted the team massively. The team’s spirit changed when he came in, he has blended in really well, connecting the back four and the attack.
“To step up and show that responsibility is huge, he’s been an amazing signing for them. He’s important to United, but important to the players around him also.
“He’s been a very pleasant surprise, because usually one player doesn’t make such a difference. United need to maintain this level of consistency.”
Manchester United are looking good, but if they dont get those signings that the club need, then they will be very lucky to get back inside those top four spots, especially as the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal will be coming for them.
