Ronaldo has proved a hit with his new team-mates and fans alike with his five goals in six matches since returning to Old Trafford.
And playmaker Fernandes reckons the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s desire is stronger than ever to rewrite the history books.
He told TNT Sports: “[It’s] the same. [He’s] hungry to break more.
“He once said something very interesting. He said it’s not he who follows the records, it’s the records that follow him.
“And I’m starting to think it’s true. Because his ability to score goals is impressive, his ability to be in the right place is impressive.
“Say what you want. Easy goals, not easy goals. There are no easy goals.
“You have to be there, you have to feel it, you have to have the feeling of the goal. He’s in the right place and scores it.
“Even being in the right place, it’s hard to score. There are those who fail, he doesn’t fail.”
Ronaldo has won three Premier League titles, two LaLigas, Serie A twice and the Champions League on five occasions.
But he also holds countless different records across an illustrious career – especially with his bonkers goalscoring.
The superstar is the top scorer in history for the Euros (14), Champions League (137 in a record 182 appearances), Real Madrid (450 – including 44 hat-tricks) and international football.
The forward is the only player plying his trade at United to win Fifa’s World Player of the Year, the European Golden Shoe and the Puskas award.
He would become the first Red Devils star to win two Ballons d’Or should he pick up the gong during his second spell in the North-West.
His tally of 31 goals in 2007-08 is a club Premier League record but Ronaldo will no doubt be aiming to beat that this season – as well as a number of other achievements.
