Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes reacts to Chelsea target goal with Sonic the Hedgehog reference

Manchester United superstar Bruno Fernandes has compared Chelsea-linked AC Milan striker Rafael Leao to Sonic the Hedgehog after his goal against Salernitana.

Reigning champions AC Milan resumed their Serie A campaign after the 2022 FIFA World Cup with a trip to Salerno on Wednesday January 4. Leao, who is heavily linked with an £86m move to Chelsea, was on the scoresheet in the 2-1 win.

In the tenth minute, he launched a dizzying run down the inside left channel, rounding legendary Mexican Salernitana keeper Guillermo Ochoa and finding the back of the net.

As reported by TalkSPORT, Manchester United superstar Fernandes watched compatriot Leao in action on Wednesday and shared a clip of his goal as an Instagram story. Fernandes, who featured in United’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth, also added an emoji of the famous speedster Sonic the Hedgehog to salute Leao’s blistering run leading to goal.

Five minutes after Chelsea’s goal, Sandro Tonali doubled Milan’s lead. Federico Bonazzolli scored for the hosts in the 83rd minute to make the game interesting, but the defending champions held on for victory.

Leao also dazzled for Portugal at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, scoring three times in five games before being knocked out by Morocco in the quarter-finals.

Manchester United ace Casemiro impresses in Bournemouth win

Since moving from Real Madrid in August, Casemiro has been impressive at Old Trafford with every passing day. On Tuesday January 3, the defensive midfielder once again showed his world-class ability, scoring the opening goal and dominating the midfield in the 3-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth.

In the 23rd minute, Christian Eriksen delivered a tasty free kick in the area, which Casemiro sumptuously sent back into the roof of the net. The Brazil international also played 50 accurate passes (85% accuracy), created a big chance, delivered four accurate long balls, made six digs and won two ground duels. Casemiro has been chosen man of the match by Manchester United fans.

Luke Shaw (39th minute) and Marcus Rashford (86th minute) were the other two scorers at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
