Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has escaped serious injury after being involved in a car crash this morning.
Midfielder Fernandes, 27, is injured after an incident involving his Porsche near the club’s Carrington training base – and he is expected to train as usual today.
It is also believed that the other parts in the collision are also unscathed.
Pictures have emerged from the scene showing the vehicle – worth £90,000 – damaged on the driver’s side, with two cars visibly battered down a narrow road.
The second car, a Volkswagen, appears to have careered into a fence, with the driver’s door hanging open. Debris was also scattered across the tarmac.
Inside, the front airbags look to have burst out, while the right-hand wheel was badly buckled and forced in against the frame, which displayed large scuff marks.

Emergency crews were also snapped by the crash.
In another photo shared on social media, Fernandes can be seen standing on the side of the road with his smashed-up luxury motor in pieces in front of him.
United interim manager Ralf Rangnick will likely provide an update on the player’s condition in his pre-match press conference this afternoon.
Fernandes’ crash comes a day before his side play Liverpool in the Premier League.
He has been a crucial player for the club since joining from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, having scored 49 goals in 120 total appearances.

This season, he has netted nine goals and registered 14 assists in 40 games.
Fernandes played 90 minutes in United’s 3-2 win against Norwich at the weekend, and would be expected to start in the game at Anfield tomorrow.
It was announced this month that he had signed a four-year contract extension at Old Trafford, which saw his wages double to around £240,000-a-week.
He won four Premier League Player of the Month awards in 2020, becoming the first player to achieve that impressive feat in a calendar year.
United are currently fifth in the top-flight, three points off fourth-placed Tottenham.

Victory over Liverpool will leave them level on points with Spurs in the race for the final Champions League qualification spot, having played a game more.
Meanwhile, club legend Rio Ferdinand has claimed Fernandes is the only signing in the past decade to have improved during their time at Old Trafford.
When asked whether Fernandes was the exception in developing with United, club legend Ferdinand said: ‘I would 100 per cent agree with that.
‘I don’t know any others that have come and you actually go, “Oh he’s actually miles better! We’ll get more money for him now!” There’s none.’
