Fernandes was asked who he prefers to Keane and Scholes in a Q&A on the club’s website.

Keane scored 51 goals in 480 appearances for United, while Scholes scored 155 goals in 718 games.

Both played huge roles in the club’s success including the 1999 Treble-winning season.

Former Sporting CP star Fernandes couldn’t choose between them – and decided to name both in his dream midfield.

He said, “This is a tough one, huh? I think it’s been the hardest by far. So I don’t know.

“If I can have both, even better, because I need someone in the back to kick everyone and recover the ball, like Roy Keane did, and have the quality to give the ball to the guys in front.

“If you look at Roy Keane, he’s the type of player for all teams. Teams play in different ways, but all teams can have him.

“It doesn’t matter if you play possession, on the contrary, you need a guy like this normally.

“I think Roy Keane is an excellent player and he can support me a lot in the back.

“Playing with Scholes would be great.

“If I could play with both, I would play with Roy Keane behind me and Scholes.

“Because Scholes and I can both dribble in the scoring area.

“We want to score, we want to be in the area, no? And we’ll probably need Roy Keane in the back.”

Keane would approve as he greatly admires Fernandes, who has scored three goals and provided four assists in nine appearances for United.

The 50-year-old man declared The midfielder’s “arrogance” contributed to his great start at Old Trafford.

And Scholes, 47 years old, encouraged Fernandes to follow in the footsteps of club legend Eric Cantona.
