Bruno Fernandes sends message to latest Portuguese star to join Wolves

Bruno Fernandes only became a Premier League player in January and he already convinced it is the best league in the world.

The Manchester United midfielder replied to Nelson Semedo’s Instagram post after the Portugal international joined Wolves from Barcelona.

Semedo has agreed a deal to keep him at Molineux until June 2023, with an option to extend it to the summer of 2025.

Ever since Matt Doherty’s transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been on the lookout for a right-back and now he has his man.

The 26-year-old made 124 appearances for Barcelona and has 13 caps for Portugal, so he comes to the Premier League as a known talent.

Semedo sounds excited about his transfer to Molineux. Wolves are a Premier League side renowned for playing attractive football and they have been knocking on the top six’s door.

He shared an Instagram post captioned: “Ready for this challenge! Wolves ay we!”

An hour later, Bruno Fernandes replied: “Welcome to the best league in the world brother.

Wolves are clearly delighted with their new signing, with executive chairman Jeff Shi telling the Wolves website: “It isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club.”

Semedo is Wolves’ third signing this summer, following the arrivals of Ki-Jana Hoever from Liverpool and Fabio Silva from FC Porto.

The Portuguese defender told the Wolves website why he chose to move to the Premier League.

“Last year they [Wolves] did a very good season and it’s a very important team in England, in Europe also,” Semedo said.

“I hope this year we can do very good things. Nuno is a very good coach. He did very good things here in Wolves, and in other teams too. For sure I’m going to learn a lot from him.”

He added: “I’m very excited to be here. It’s a very good team. To play in the Premier League is a dream from me too. So, I’m very excited to begin, to meet my teammates and start training.”

Portuguese players have done well in the Premier League, especially at Wolves in recent years, but none of them are on the same level as Fernandes at the moment.
