Fernandes said: “I will be happy when I win the Premier League.
“The point of coming to England, to such a huge club, was to win the Premier League and I think we have the chance to do it.”
United are just five points off top spot in the league with a game in hand.

And Fernandes was backed up by Solskjaer, who said: “At Manchester United you should always aim to win trophies.
“In the last three seasons, there has been two teams far ahead of the rest of the pack.
“But I believe since the turn of the year this team has been improving and we can put up a challenge.
“We need to improve on last season but I don’t think any team will run away with it. I go into every single game wanting to win and feeling we can win.
“If you win every game you end up with a trophy.”
The pressure is certainly on Solskjaer after that disappointing 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig.
But the Norwegian added: “There’s always pressure on you when you manage Man United. That’s something I had to think about when I accepted the role.
“Do I have what it takes to be in such a situation? Can you handle setbacks? Can you handle success? I think I can.
“I’ve got fantastic staff who I use as sparring partners for discussions — even the conversation with the club goes on all the time. It’s open dialogue.
“When you come to work you see the quality of the players and want to work with them.”
