Fernandes said United must view the Europa League as a launch pad for long-term success

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes said winning the Europa League would signal improvement at the Old Trafford side but success in Europe's second-tier club competition should not be enough for them.

United have all but booked their place in the final of the competition they last won in 2017, having thrashed AS Roma 6-2 in the first leg of their semi-final tie at Old Trafford.

Speaking ahead of the return fixture later Thursday, Fernandes said the team must view the tournament as a launch pad for long-term success.

Bruno has bagged 28 goals in all competitions and provided 17 assists to transform Manchester United from underachievers into Premier League title contenders

Fernandes said he hoped striker Edinson Cavani and midfielder Paul Pogba would remain at the club.

The contract of World Cup winner Pogba, who joined United from Juventus for 89m pounds ($123.65m) in 2016, is set to run out in 2022.

Cavani arrived at United on a one-year contract in October with an option for another 12 months but he remains undecided about his future.
