BRUNO FERNANDES has been the cream of the crop for Manchester United this season.
And the secret to his udderly brilliant performances could be down to his relentless milk intake.
The Portuguese superstar has been spotted by eagle-eyed viewers sipping on the white stuff from the substitute bench during moments throughout the season.
During a Q&A with Red Devil supporters, one asked why he has stopped his ritual.
But Fernandes was eager to reassure he is still downing milk and claimed he even drinks it in the dressing room and at home.
As reported on United’s official site, he said: “I don’t stop drinking milk. It’s just that the coach is substituting me less than before.
“Before, he changed me a lot of times and I think in the last games I was not coming off a lot of times so you never see me with the milk.
“But, honestly, I don’t know if it is milk – sometimes it’s milk and sometimes it’s water with some stuff to help us [with the] recovery.
“But it’s okay, the milkman for me, I like milk so it’s okay, don’t worry about that. I still do it but sometimes in the dressing room, sometimes I take that drink to my home to drink.
“Don’t worry, it’s still there. If it was not still there, I was not running like I’m running now!”
It certainly seems to be working with 16 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League this season.
SunSport exclusively revealed how Fernandes will sign a new contract – but only if Paul Pogba does the same.
Pogba’s current deal is up in June of next year after United triggered a one-year extension back in October.
SunSport also revealed on March 10 how the club had approached Fernandes over a new double-your-money five-year contract worth £200,000 a week.
But he did not want to enter talks until he saw the club’s ambition in the transfer market this summer.
