Manchester United fans are already loving the connection between Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes after the club's new man spoke about their mindset ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Sancho could make his Man United debut when his side face Leeds in their Premier League opener on Saturday.
Fans are excited about Sancho and Fernandes potentially starting together at Old Trafford, with the England international linking up nicely with the Portuguese maestro in training.
He spoke with Rio Ferdinand, who asked him about thriving in big moments like former Man United hero Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Like with Bruno Fernandes... Today we were on the same team, and we just linked up very well." :eyes::fire:
Man Utd fans, we've got a treat for you just in time for the new season...

Asked about elite-level mentality, he replied: "Yeah, definitely. I can see that in a few of the players like Bruno.
"We were on the same team and we linked up very well, you know, me and him love winning.
"I'm glad me and Bruno have the same mindset because it's needed, especially at a big team like this.
"If you want to win things, you have to learn how to win in training and in matches so it's important."
