Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation since joining Manchester United in January 2020, quickly becoming a fan favourite and a key figure in the team. However, the Portuguese midfielder may be at risk of missing out on the permanent captaincy of the Red Devils, as his team-mates have identified three other candidates for the role.
Fernandes has been a standout performer for United since his arrival, scoring 28 goals and providing 17 assists in just 45 appearances. He has been a leader on the pitch, often taking responsibility for the team’s performance and inspiring his team-mates with his work-rate and determination.
However, despite his impressive form, Fernandes may not be the first choice for the captaincy. According to reports, his team-mates have identified three other candidates for the role: Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw.
Maguire has been United’s captain since his arrival in 2019 and has been a consistent performer for the club. He is a vocal leader on the pitch and has the respect of his team-mates. Lindelof has also been a key figure in the team since his arrival in 2017 and is a popular figure in the dressing room. Shaw has been at United since 2014 and has been a consistent performer, despite his injury problems.
All three players have been identified by the team as potential captains and could be in contention for the role ahead of Fernandes. It is unclear whether Fernandes will be given the captaincy or not, but it is clear that he is not the only candidate being considered.
