Bruno Fernandes has signed a new contract deal with Manchester United that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2026 with an option to extend until 2027, the club stated in a statement. The star player from Portugal joined Manchester United in the winter of 2020 and has since established himself as a key figure in the Premier League and at the heart of the Red Devils, scoring 49 goals and giving 39 assists in 117 games.
Despite the fact that Fernandes still maintains his prior contract, which would have kept him at the club for another three years, it is clear that he has received a large salary boost as a result of this extension.
One of the more eye-catching decisions made by new CEO Richard Arnold since taking over from Ed Woodward as the club’s most senior official is Fernandes’ extension with the club.
All we can do is predict that he will now focus his attention on choosing Erik Ten Hag as the next manager of the Manchester United football club.
The Portuguese International expressed his views on the extension and said:
Bruno Fernandes said: “From the moment that I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and our amazing fans. I grew up watching this team, dreaming of getting the chance to play here one day.“That dream is now a reality and an honor.”
“Even after two years, it still feels amazing to step out at Old Trafford to hear the fans sing my name in their songs and to score in front of the Stretford End”.
“There is so much more that I want to achieve here, and I know that is the same for the rest of the squad and staff. More than anything, we want to give the fans the success that they deserve.”
“We have shared some great moments over the last years, but the best is yet to come” – Fernandes said.
