Bruno Fernandes signed for Manchester United in a stunning £47million deal in January but decided against sleeping alone in his hotel room on his first days, MySportDab reports.
Instead, the midfielder accepted an offer from team-mate Diogo Dalot to sleep at his home.
The Portuguese duo now have quickly become close friends on and off the pitch at Manchester United.
Full-back Diogo Dalot has played a very important part in helping the former Sporting Lisbon player adjust to life in the Premier League.
MySportDab understands that since Fernandes has joined Manchester United they have turned their season around and are currently on an 11-match unbeaten run.
“Since I arrived, Dalot has helped me a lot,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.
“In the first few days, I slept at his home because I was in an hotel but he tells me to come to his home and he helped me to do alot.
“I’m really happy to have Diogo with me because in the first few days, he helped me very much.”
Fernandes and Dalot always try to get into United’s Carrington training ground complex earlier than everyone else.
“I have had a car for a week but Dalot wants to drive me to training and we mostly go together,” he added.
“Normally, we are very early but sometimes Phil Jones comes earlier, but I believe Diogo wants company so I go with him to breakfast together or the gym but it’s all about partnerships.”
Fernandes will now have to wait for his next Manchester United appearance until at least April 3 after the Premier League season has been postponed due to coronavirus fears.
