Comparing Bruno Fernandes’ first 50 Man Utd games with Ronaldo’s last 50

Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation since joining Manchester United, following in the footsteps of compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo. 

After joining United from Sporting Lisbon, Ronaldo developed into one of the best players in the world before completing an £80million move to Real Madrid in 2009.

While Ronaldo arrived as a raw talent, Fernandes hit the ground running after signing for United in January 2020 and has helped transform the club’s fortunes. 

We’ve compared Fernandes’ first 50 games at United to Ronaldo’s last 50 for the Red Devils to see who comes out on top.

While the midfielder scored more goals than his international team-mate, Ronaldo comes out on top in terms of non-penalty goals.

Fernandes is also renowned for his creativity on the ball and has already set up 17 goals for his United team-mates, five more than Ronaldo managed in his last 50 games.
