Bruno Fernandes has been criticised for claiming he wanted Matheus Nunes to join Manchester United ahead of Wolves.

Nunes moved to Molineaux this summer from Sporting CP.

Speaking to BeMyBet, former United defender Paul Parker said: "It seems like he has a too high opinion of himself. I think he should actually engage his brain before he opens his mouth.

"I really don't understand why Fernandes has this need to come out and speak all of a sudden when he really has not performed for a long time. It is really up to the club who they want to sign, so the players should not be talking of things like this.

"I would never have said that when I was playing for Manchester United. If I was asked this under [Sir Alex] Ferguson I would turn away without answering, because the manager would never have accepted that."
