Defying the old adage that it's impossible to conduct good business in the January transfer window, Bruno Fernandes has gotten off to a flyer at Manchester United - and if he needs pointers on how to succeed at Old Trafford he need only look at his Portuguese predecessors.

Although the current postponement of all football across Europe has put a dampener on Fernandes' fabulous form, the Premier League 'February Player of the Month' looks a star in the making and has three goals and four assists already to his name after nine appearances in a Red Devils jersey.
