Details revealed as Bruno Fernandes ‘closing in’ on new Man United contract

Fernandes & Man United

The signing of Bruno Fernandes has proven to be one of the best bits of business Manchester United have done in years.

The Portuguese arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting CP in January of 2020, and has since gone on to completely dominate the English top-flight.

Fernandes, of course, played a key role in United securing a Champions League spot in 2019/20.

The midfield maestro was then once again in top form last season. In total, Fernandes netted 28 and assisted 17 in 58 outings across all competitions – a feat which saw him named as Man United’s Player of the Year.

And the Portuguese’s fine form has since carried over into the current campaign, too.

New Fernandes deal?

Fernandes has already scored four in four in the Premier League this term, whilst also providing a superb assist for Cristiano Ronaldo versus Young Boys earlier this week.

In turn, despite being tied down at Old Trafford until at least 2025, Fernandes appears to be in line for a new contract amid his sensational stint in United red thus far.

According to the Sun, the midfielder is close to committing to fresh terms. The deal will reportedly be five years long, keeping him in Manchester until 2026.

It is added that Fernandes will increase his salary by nearly £100,000-a-week, to over £250,000-a-week.

The Sun go on to claim that the 26-year-old has been persuaded to stay put on the back of the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, and United’s huge summer investment on the transfer market.
