Bruno Fernandes has settled so well at Manchester United it is like he has been around for two years, according to teammate Diogo Dalot.

Fernandes made his debut for United in a 0-0 draw with Wolves on February 1, having joined the Premier League club from Sporting CP in January.

Dalot said his Portuguese compatriot had settled well at United, which is in Spain during its mid-season break.

"Perfectly. I mean, it is like he has been here for two years already," the full-back told the club's website.

"Those competitions, we want to win them with everything we have and the fight for the top four in the Premier League, because that is what we want as players.
