3. Bruno Fernandes (Sporting Lisbon, £47m), Jan. 30, 2020
The deafening sound of Bruno, Bruno, Bruno he is the Portuguese El magnifico echoed throughout the Old Trafford stadium and slowly became every Red Devils fan's favourite chant. Fernandes has been a brimmer of hope in United's recent history. Since joining the club from Sporting CP in Portugal. The witty midfielder has scored 71 goals and served up a platter of 59 assists in 216 games over 3½ seasons. In his very first season, Bruno joined the club while they were languishing in fifth, six points outside of the fourth spot.
His immediate impact saw them chart up the table after several strings of very good performances to finish third at the end of the season. He scored or assisted 15 goals in 14 Premier League matches. His purple patch of form continued into his second season in England when he scored 18 and assisted 12 in 37 league appearances. He rarely misses a game, and being a fixture in the starting XI was an easy decision to make him the club captain at the start of this season. So far in this campaign, he has 12 goal contributions in 21 matches.
