Bruno Fernandes agrees with Lionel Messi claim about Chelsea star

0 messibruno

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes is in agreement with Lionel Messi over Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

Mount has been excellent for Chelsea this season, quickly becoming one of the most promising talents in European football with nine goals and eight assists so far this season.

Still only 22, Mount clearly has a big future ahead having already nailed down a spot in Thomas Tuchel’s midfield, and he is already being noticed by some of the game’s biggest superstars.

One of the latest is Manchester United midfielder Fernandes, who has become one of the best players in Mount’s attacking midfield position in the last 18 months or so.

“As I’ve said, we have many players I can say now and it’s difficult to choose just one,” he told Manchester United’s website when asked about promising talents in the Premier League.

“For example, Ruben Dias has come from Benfica and been consistent since he arrived [at Manchester City].

“In our team, we also have players who have been consistent for all the season and I can’t remember more players at the moment.”

He added: “For example, I really like Mason Mount – he’s been consistent from the beginning of the season but, if people will watch numbers he’s not had so many goals as other players or assists as other players but, for me, as performances he’s been really, really top.

One of the best players to ever grace the game in Messi has been equally complimentary of Mount, once saying: “Having watched him play, he has the potential to be one of the best.”

Thankfully for Chelsea, Mount is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2024, meaning his steep development curve will continue in a blue shirt over the coming years.
