Bruno Fernandes stands out for Man Utd in FA Cup final win over Man City

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes delivered a standout performance during the 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final today.

The Red Devils went into the game as underdogs, but they rose to the occasion with goals from teenage duo Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo.

Fernandes was also brilliant with his playmaking. He provided a fantastic assist for Mainoo’s goal which proved to be the match-winner for United.

The Portuguese won nine ground and aerial duels and created five key chances. He also completed all of his dribbles (3/3).

It was a perfect captain’s performance from the 29-year-old, who helped the Red Devils win the 13th FA Cup trophy in their history.

United have qualified for the extended version of next season’s Europa League.

The fans will go into the summer in a good mood, but it remains to be seen whether manager Erik ten Hag will be in charge next season.

The decision has reportedly been made to dismiss the Dutchman, and the club’s stance should be confirmed soon.

United have a big summer ahead in the transfer window and they may need multiple marquee signings with key players heading for the exit door.

Raphael Varane has confirmed his departure at the expiry of his contract in June. Jonny Evans could walk away on a free transfer this summer.

Casemiro’s future could be another topic of discussion. He was initially on the bench for the FA Cup final before dropping out with a minor muscle issue.

The hierarchy must make a quick decision over the manager’s future so they can fully concentrate on reinforcing the first-team squad.
