The 26-year-old Portuguese midfielder took part in a Twitter Q&A on Thursday and was asked various questions about his footballing career.
But one Twitter user took the opportunity to ask Fernandes which former United star he really wanted to play alongside at Old Trafford.
Fernandes revealed that he would have loved to play alongside Wayne Rooney, Eric Cantona or Cristiano Ronaldo.
Of course, the United star has had the chance to share the pitch with Ronaldo during their international matches with Portugal.
However, United legend Roy Keane has dismissed any comparisons between the Portugal international and Cantona, saying that the latter was one of the top players who turned up for the "big occasions."
Responding to fans in his Q&A, Fernandes admitted that Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta was his footballing idol.
The former Sporting star wrote: "[Andres Iniesta] as player and as a person. Such a legend!"
Fernandes also picked out Juventus legend Giorgio Chiellini as his most challenging defender, saying that he is a "top, top player."
The United midfielder tweeted: "[Giorgio Chiellini] for me [was] one of the most underrated player [sic]! Top top player for me."
Fernandes previously revealed that his dream United midfield would have included the opportunity to play alongside club legends Paul Scholes and Keane.
"To play side-to-side with Scholes would be fantastic," he told United's official website in April 2020.
"If I can play with both, I play with Roy Keane in the back behind me and Scholes. Because me and Scholes can both go in the area, scoring.
"We want to score, we want to be in the area, no? And maybe we will need Roy Keane at our backs."
