(Video) Bruno Fernandes can’t hide his appreciation for rivals’ skilful star

Manchester United’s midfield superstar has recently taken to his official social media to applaud rivals Leeds United winger Raphinha.

The pair engaged in an Instagram exchange which saw the Brazilian winger show-off some insane ball skills.

After joining Leeds United last summer from French side Rennes, the exciting attacker has already hit the ground running in England’s top-flight.

After being directly involved in eight goals from his first 17 Premier League appearances, there appears to be genuine excitement surrounding this 24-year-old.

Raphinha is reportedly a summer transfer target for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, as per France Football (via Daily Mail), but could it be that Fernandes’ obviously rating of his former team-mate may prompted United to take a closer look?
