Comparing Bruno Fernandes’ first 50 Man Utd games with Ronaldo’s last 50
Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation since joining Manchester United, following in the footsteps of compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo.

We’ve compared Fernandes’ first 50 games at United to Ronaldo’s last 50 for the Red Devils to see who comes out on top.
