Bruno Fernandes has become the first footballer directly involved in the Super League to break his silence on the controversial breakaway competition.

The Manchester United midfielder shared an Instagram post from compatriot Daniel Podence, in which the Wolves forward appeared to condemn the proposal.

Podence's post reads: "The ball. The song. The dream. The Zidane's volley... Kaka's solo... Liverpool in Athens... Ole in Barcelona... Cris and Seedorf... There some (sic) things we just can't really pay for."

Responding to the post, Fernandes replied: "Enorme (enormous)."

The Red Devils star later shared the post to his own Instagram Story, and included the text: "Dreams can't be [bought]," alongside clapping emojis.

Until now players of clubs involved in the Super League plan have kept their cards close to their chest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had little to say ahead of the official announcement on Sunday, following Manchester United's 3-1 victory over Burnley.

And on Monday morning, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel gave little away in regards to what he thinks.

"I trust my club to make the right decisions. It is too early to judge everything and it is not my part. On my badge, it says everybody has to play their role and my role is coach."

He added: "There are way too many opinions out there.... let's be honest, I am an employee of this club. I can understand you are curious, there are emotional reactions out there but I honestly don't know enough."
