Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes was spotted having a sly chat with Marcus Rashford after the club’s 5-2 Premier League win over Bournemouth on Saturday. The Red Devils beat the Cherries with a fine display of attacking football. And both players were on target with Mason Greenwood scoring a brace and Anthony Martial also finding the net against Eddie Howe’s side.
Manchester United survived an early scare against Bournemouth to battle their way to victory.
The away side took a shock lead through Junior Stanislas, with Greenwood then equalising courtesy of a powerful low drive.
United grabbed further goals courtesy of Rashford and Anthony Martial, with Greenwood and Fernandes then adding gloss on a positive afternoon.
And, after the match, the BT Sport cameras snapped Fernandes deep in conversation with Rashford.
The 25-year-old appears to amuse the England international who could be seen laughing shortly after the exchange.
