Key Man United star unhappy with club’s transfer activity in the summer

Bruno Fernandes unhappy with Manchester United’s summer window

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast (h/t The Express), Duncan Castles believes Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has been left frustrated by the club’s transfer activity this summer.

United have endured a difficult summer where they missed out on securing Jadon Sancho. The Borussia Dortmund star was the club’s priority signing but the club were unable to work out a deal.

A late flurry on deadline day saw us secure agreements for Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo.

“Fernandes is angry with the club because what they did in the summer does not cohere with his expectations of what would happen when he arrived.”

Fernandes has been frustrated since out humiliating 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The 25-year-old was taken off at half-time in favour of Brazilian star Fred.

The result has led to speculation that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be replaced by Mauricio Pochettino if results don’t improve.

Castles has revealed that Fernandes is among a number of United stars who remain unconvinced by the Norwegian’s ability to bring success to United.

“He doesn’t feel like [Solskjaer] is strong enough to manage the squad and he doesn’t have the capabilities to push the players they have forward in the direction they should go.”

The report goes on to state that United also have an interest in Massimilano Allegri. However, they have not been in contact with the former Juventus manager.

Castles’ revelations point to a team that is divided and under a leadership that does not appear to inspire much faith.

United have won just three out a possible nine points so far in the Premier League this season. We have been largely outplayed in all three games so far and will need to improve if we are to better what we achieved last season.
