Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay believes January signings Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo have made very good first impressions at Manchester United. Bruno Fernandes arrived at Old Trafford in a £46.6 million deal after a protracted transfer saga, while Odion Ighalo was captured on loan on the cusp of the transfer deadline. Scott McTominay, who is a regular feature in Manchester United’s midfield, is currently nursing an injury and is expected to be back in March.
