Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has revealed that fellow teammate Paul Pogba helped him find a house following his transfer to Manchester United in January.

Bruno Fernandes has hit the ground running since joining the Red Devils late during the January transfer window. He signed on a five-and-a-half season contract with Manchester United. He was named the PL Player of the Month for the month of February. He has made 11 appearances for the Red Devils and has scored four goals and bagged four assists. He revealed that Pogba helped him settle down in his initial days.

“Paul [Pogba] is the guy who came when I arrived with a big book and said ‘where do you want to live, what price you want to pay, house or apartment’,” he told SoccerBible. “He flicked through the pages. I chose three places and he said okay tomorrow we will check them.

“I decided the next day – then I did the tests, then power tests, the next day I was with the team training and the next day I was playing against Wolves. And that day I went back to Portugal and when I arrived back I had the house. Adaptation in Manchester was really fast.

“I couldn’t imagine it would be fast like this because I lived in other countries and every time it was a problem to find a house and everything.”

Pogba and Bruno have formed a formidable duo since the restart of the Premier League last week. Pogba won a penalty for United against Tottenham and Bruno scored the equaliser from the spot. United faced top-six rivals, Sheffield, earlier this week and ran out winners as Martial scored a hat-trick. They face Norwich in the FA Cup Quarter-final clash tomorrow.
