Man Utd ace Fernandes: Rashy and I targeting Haaland

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says he and Marcus Rashford are gunning for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

With 10 goals in European competitions, Haaland is top of the charts - but he is being chased down by Fernandes and Rashford.

The United pair both have notched nine goals in Europe ahead of their Red Devils' Europa League semi-final second leg against Roma.

At the pre-match press conference, Fernandes was asked about the prospect of overtaking Haaland in the charts.

“No," he replied when asked if he had an eye on Haaland at the top of the standings. “For me, helping Rashy to pass him is more important for me.

“I'm there to serve my strikers. It doesn't matter if I pass [him] or Rashy passes [him]. I will be happy anyway because I give many assists to him.

Asked if they could both overtake Haaland, he added: “That would be good and we draw at the end!"
