Former midfielder Owen Hargreaves heaps praise on Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes, claiming that the playmaker is "the real deal".

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has admitted that he has been left impressed by Bruno Fernandes.

Since moving to Old Trafford in January, the Portugal international has contributed three goals and three assists in all competitions.

Despite it being relatively early days in his United career, Fernandes has been praised for the effect which he has had on his teammates.

Speaking to BT Sport, Hargreaves said: "He's been magnificent. He has made everyone better. He loves shots from outside the box, he is one of the best at it. His goals and assists are right there.

"Everyone is playing better. He has given everyone a lift and he is the real deal."

Hargreaves represented United between 2007 and 2011, making just 39 appearances during that time due to injury.
