Bruno Fernandes believes James Garner has a great future at Manchester United amid reports linking the Premier League starlet to a loan at Rangers or Nottingham Forest, addressing MUTV.
Garner isn’t the first youngster from Old Trafford to be called the “next Michael Carrick”.
And, like Sean Goss, a short-term move to Ibrox could be a natural next step in the development of a man looking to harness his potential.
It didn’t really work for Goss, of course – at Old Trafford or Ibrox by the way.
Garner, however, would arrive in Glasgow after an exceptional six months at Nottingham Forest, scoring four times from central midfielder while establishing himself as one of the league’s most influential playmakers.
No wonder Forest wants to get it back.
According to The sunGarner is also a target for Sheffield United, who are looking to promote the promotion of Slavisa Jokanovic, while Rangers could also step up their interest after already attracting a Manchester-based starlet in the form of Charlie McCann.
Whatever this season has in store for Garner, Bruno Fernandes is confident that England’s Under-20 ace will one day play alongside him in Manchester United midfielder.

“Jimmy Garner, I think, is a very good player. I like him a lot and the way he hits the ball. He’s also very aggressive off the ball,” said the Portuguese superstar.
Garner, born in Birkenhead, was tagged the “next Michael CarrickBy Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – and you can see why.
Breaking the lines with piercing passes, the converted center-half is able to dictate play from the middle of the park – just like the five-time Premier League winner.
Maybe the Rangers could use Garner as a youthful alternative to their own playmaker – Steven Davis, 36, always green.
Garner’s agent confirmed Rangers interest in April, via Stretty News.
