Bruno Fernandes played with the 27-year-old when they were at Udinese before they were separated in 2016.

Fernandes has told Poland's


, with United forever in the market for creative talent:

"Technically, I can say that Zielinski is better trained than I am.

"We had a good challenge. I think in the past, Zielinski was actually a bit shy. He was really young then, just like me, at that time.

"However, we came from different countries, different mentality, and it was different for both of us. I have a really good relationship with Piotr.

"He’s a top guy, I like him a lot. He is one of the people I met in Italy with whom I am in touch all the time.

"I spoke to him a few months ago and told him that I would like to play with him again.

"So, who knows what the future has waiting for us. For me, he is a really, really top player."

Zielinski, who has a contract with Napoli, has scored 32 goals for the club in 238 games, and his contract will make it hard for other clubs to sign him despite his impressive performances.
