Manchester United have the ability to build an “amazing” midfield partnership if they are willing to “compromise” with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, says Gary Neville.
Portugal midfielder Fernandes hit United immediately after finally reaching a ££ ..6 million (€ 60 million) deal in January before the coronavirus epidemic halted its pace.
Fernandes has scored three goals and assisted four of nine matches throughout the tournament but has yet to add to Pogba, who has been sidelined since December due to an ankle injury and later suspended in the Premier League due to the Covid-19 crisis.
The Red Devils were in good form before the forced break and collected unbeaten runs in 11 matches and are quite optimistic for the double act of former United defenders Neville Pogba and Fernandez.
In a Twitter Q&A, Neville answered two related questions: “If they compromise and work to help each other, they might be surprised together.”
Before focusing on the club’s transfer policy, Neville suggested Pogba as a possible added player to win the Ballon d’Or one day.
When asked about his perceptions of the financial club as “tenants” could come when the club begins to return to normal in the financial world, Neville replied: “The transfer policy has changed in the last two years, so I don’t expect that.”
The former England all-rounder also declined to name a specific player who would like to see the United sign, but added: “Not names but I prefer 20-25 year olds to sign them.”
