Bruno Fernandes is angry with Manchester United’s hierarchy over their approach to the summer transfer window, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer missed out on his top target as Jadon Sancho stayed put at Borussia Dortmund, with United refusing to meet the German club’s €120 million (£107.8m) asking price.
United were forced into a late flurry of activity on deadline day as Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani, 18-year-old Uruguayan winger Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo, who will join in January, were all signed.
Donny van de Beek also joined United in a £39m deal from Ajax earlier in the window but the midfielder is yet to start a Premier League game.
According to Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast, Fernandes is unhappy with United over their business in the transfer window and believes the club’s activity did not match the expectations he had when he arrived at Old Trafford in January.
It’s also claimed that Fernandes believes that United have not signed players who will improve the squad to a level that will bring them closer to Liverpool and Manchester City.
The latest report comes after Fernandes vented his frustration towards his United teammates at half time during their 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break.
It has been claimed that Fernandes yelled at United’s players, ‘we are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening.’
The Portugal international is also said to have been critical of Solskjaer’s tactical approach to the game.
United have lost two out of their opening three Premier League games and will be looking to get back on track against Newcastle United on Saturday.
United’s Champions League campaign also begins next week as Solskjaer’s side face Paris Saint-Germain.
