Scholes admits he is impressed by the immediate impact made at Old Trafford and he has compared Fernandes with Man City legend David Silva.
“Sometimes it just takes one player to turn a team around and knit a team together," Scholes told a MUTV group chat.
“I don't like talking about City, but you think of David Silva - that player that links all the play together, and I think we've found him in Fernandes. He's totally transformed the team.
“It's gone from watching a little bit of a dull team, to one player coming in and all of a sudden they look like they're going to create, they look like they're going to score goals every time he's in possession of the ball.
“It wasn't until the season after when they really got used to it and picked up and went on to have really amazing careers.
“But this lad, he's picked it up straight away, and it's been a real benefit. I keep saying he's transformed the team, but I really think he has."
