Bruno Fernandes, Man Utd, Premier League 2020-21

Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he wanted to sign Bruno Fernandes at PSG before the Portugal starjoined Manchester United.

Antero Henrique, PSG's former sporting director, alerted then-manager Tuchel to the talents of Fernandes. Tuchel now believes that the 26-year-old is among the best players in the world.

"With my first sporting director in Paris, Antero Henrique, a Portuguese sporting director, and he knew Fernandesvery well," Chelsea boss Tuchel told reporters ahead of Sunday's match.

"We fought hard to have a connection to him and to bring him to our team. I got made aware of him more in detail, so we watched more and more games about him and followed him and tried to be in touch with him to make it happen.

"Obviously, he decided to sign for Man Utd and I was never personally in touch with him, but we tried and he went another way. It is bad for us that we have to play against him."

"The impact he has had since he arrived at Manchester United is indescribable and unbelievable," Tuchel added.

"To come from Portugal, from a competitive team, a big club but not from the strongest league and stepping in a year to one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and the strongest league in Europe and to have this kind of impact, I have nothing but the biggest respect for this guy.

"It is outstanding. He is one of the best midfielders in the world, attacking midfielders, and he has a huge, huge impact and to have this as a single person in football, you must be absolutely top level because this is almost impossible.

"But he has such a big influence on their game, on their attacking game and that it is a big key to defend against him, to be around him and close to him and he is a key player of Man Utdin a way that is outstanding."

Fernandes has the most goal involvements in the Premier League this season after racking up 15 goals and 10 assists in the division.

In all competitions, Fernandes has 22 goals and 13 assists and he has been an ever-present in Solskjaer's line-up, playing 2,940 minutes in 38 appearances.
