Bruno Fernandes: With Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United closer to winning trophies

Bruno Fernandes believes the signing of compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo increases the likelihood of Manchester United claiming silverware this season.

Fernandes was instrumental in convincing the 36-year-old to return to United after a 12-year absence.

Ronaldo's transfer from Juventus has dominated the football headlines since his announcement a fortnight ago, everyone is now looking forward to his potential second debut, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side take on Newcastle this weekend .

Although Fernandes has been abroad and has yet to work at Carrington with his international teammate, it is clear that he is feeling the same buzz around the transfer as the rest of us.

And he believes the legendary winning mentality of the former Real Madrid star will only strengthen the desire for an already starving United side.

"We know the enthusiasm will be burning, everyone knows Cristiano is in the house," said Bruno, after leaving with the Selecao.

“Everyone is very confident and happy that he's back, the players too.

"We know what he can give us, and our goal, like Cristiano's, is to win.

"With him, we know we're closer to winning [trophies]."
