However, it’s now been confirmed that Eriksen will now ply his trade in Serie A, completing a £27.2 million move to Inter Milan. With his incredible playmaking ability, Eriksen is poised to set Serie A alight.

Bruno Fernandes (OVR 85 → OTW 85)


Position: CAM, CM

New club: Manchester United

Cost: 11.75k PS4 / 11.5k Xbox One

Since joining Sporting back in 2017, Bruno Fernades has developed into an incredible midfield talent. He’s been on sublime form this season, contributing 15 goals and 14 assists in 28 appearances.

It’s no wonder the Portuguese man has been so sought after. Although Barcelona looked to highjack Manchester United’s deal, the Red Devils have won the race for Fernandes.
