Bruno Fernandes has expressed his admiration for his departing Manchester United teammate, David De Gea, emphasizing that the goalkeeper deserved a more fitting farewell.
De Gea recently announced his departure from the club as his contract came to an end in June, and Fernandes believes that a farewell in the presence of fans at Old Trafford would have been a more suitable tribute who holds the distinction of being the club’s third-highest appearance maker in the Premier League.
Taking to Instagram, the Portuguese international shared his heartfelt message stating, “You already know my thoughts about you and how much I will miss you, bro.”
“You deserved to say goodbye at the stadium with all the fans cheering you for your beautiful memories.
“You made history at the club and your name will never be forgotten. All the best for what’s coming for you and your family.”
As De Gea bids farewell to the club, he leaves on a high note, having secured the Premier League Golden Glove award in the previous season. The recognition highlights his exceptional performances as a goalkeeper.
Meanwhile, there are reports indicating that Manchester United is interested in recruiting Inter Milan’s Andre Onana as a potential replacement for De Gea.
