The Red Devils talisman has found the target on 26 occasions this season, but he is looking to blast through the 30-goal barrier

Bruno Fernandes is setting the ambitious target of posting a new personal best on the goal front this season, with the Portuguese eager to lift his current haul of 26 up and beyond 32.

The 26-year-old once hit that mark for Sporting, back in the 2018-19 season, and believes he can go even better at Old Trafford.

He bagged another brace in a thrilling 6-2 victory over Roma in the first leg of a heavyweight Europa League semi-final clash and feels there are more goals and assists in him.

Asked by United’s official website whether he expected to be so productive in the final third this season, the Red Devils talisman said: “I scored 32 at Sporting so I expect to pass that mark!

“My target every time is to do better and better and my target now, as everyone knows, is to win trophies.

“For myself [my target] is to improve every season. I think if I score 32 goals in one season, I can do better.

“I know it’s a big number but why not!? If you dream about and fight for it, you can do it.

“I will keep improving on that and trying to do better and better and keep trying to give more assists.

“My best season with assists was 20, I don’t know how many I have this season, but I have to reach that level again.”
